A STRANGER IN NEED - IS A FRIEND INDEED...

Thank you Sherry Mosley for taking Susan to the laundry mat this morning and providing her with a brand new pair of shoes! She was bragging on how nice they felt!  For all who inquired about helping her with laundry, thank you. Today was the first time she had done her laundry since she’s been homeless (since May)     #susanpricehomeprojectThank you Sherry Mosley for taking Susan to the laundry mat this morning and providing her with a brand new pair of shoes!

New shoes for Susie!New shoes for Susie!

Something wonderful is happening in Blaine, Ky.

...In a time when so many feel hopeless and unsure about the future...

Please keep reading and watching because I feel so blessed to share this story of love, compassion, empathy and hope... not to mention the selflessness. It makes it seem possible that the divide and evil that plagues so many can simply be overcome by people just like the people from our little community.

This, folks is why I love my Eastern Ky. roots...

Susan is a disabled 64 year widow who lost her husband to cancer and her home to a fire. She currently lives in a garden shed on her property. We are coming together as a community to help. Please consider donating. We need funds for water hookup, sewage hookup, electric, HVAC & material to turn a shed into a cottage! You can make donations directly to Unity Baptist Church of Blaine if you wish them to be tax deductible.

Sheriff Deputy Chuck Jackson bringing food, water and genuine compassion,  states Mr. CastleSheriff Deputy Chuck Jackson bringing food, water and genuine compassion, states Mr. Castle

Daniel states:

"So far I’ve had 67 different conversations on messenger concerning #susanpricehomeproject. A lot you offered to bring clothes,refrigerators or building material. The absolute best way to help is to donate money. The reason why is we have teamed up with local business to deeply discount purchases material, so we can stretch every dollar. Another reason is we don’t want to end up with piles of unusable material that will go to waste.

I understand the hesitation to give as I’ve been taken advantage of in the past, so please understand I am not giving her money spend loosely. I am overseeing spending and approving purchases based on her long term needs and care. I believe in transparency and honesty when it comes to spending other people’s money, holding myself to a high standard is the only way."

Check out their page, help Susan and show that we do come together in a small town with thanks to selfless people they are almost at their goal. See their facebook page, Susan Home Project or skip to their gofundme site!

Quoting cossin:
I think Sara might want to rethink that about Chuck Jackson for Sheriff. Cause I went in to report a well fair check on this lady just 3 weeks prior to all this and Deputy Jackson was the one that went out and said she was fine and didn't need anything. So is this a political thing? Cause her situation didn't change in 3 weeks when I tried to get her help and he said he was ok and didn't need anything.
I was saying the same thing this poor lady needs Help but if You notice all the ones that are posing for Pictures are the ones that are running for Votes in the Election When the Election is over You will never hear anything about this poor soul again they will drop her like a old dirty wash cloth

It's great that LC is coming together for this lady. Warms my heart. Daniel Castle is the main one who deserves credit here and he hasn't been mentioned in the comments. Good job Daniel. I don't know you, but I read and hear good things about you.

So many of the churches around here pay thousands of dollars to go places so they can do mission work. Then put videos and pictures on facebook, so everyone knows how giving they are. They could take their thousands and do mission work right here at home and it wouldn't cost hardly anything to help local people in need.

Hopefully,she can get a 14x40 outbuilding donated and fix it into a small home! That will save her on heating and cooling

It’s wonderful that the community has came together to help this lady. These are some wonderful people. Chuck Jackson is a very thoughtful and caring man...just one of the reasons he should be the next sheriff of Lawrence County.
