Here's who we have this week:
Maybelle (sweet elderly lady) needs her trailer power washed (she has all the stuff) so the mold on the outside doesn't take over.
Barb (caretaker of her mother with dementia) needs someone to help weed the field behind her house (with an industrial strength weed- wacker that we will rent) Elise can do it but could use a hand.
Marlene, who lost her husband last year (and he was the gardener) needs us to get some plants in the ground for her.
There are, funny enough, two "recliner transports" that need to happen (these folks need them because they have physical ailments that require their feet up or help getting up) We need two people and a truck for each of them.
And finally - does anyone know someone in Arlee who might be willing to give Bob (a veteran) a ride three days a week to dialysis? We have tried every transportation organization out there with no luck and his wife will lose the family business soon if she keeps having to take him (they will lose everything, really.)
Thanks for getting the word out and jumping in this week!
