A local school has let us know about a child they consider to be at-risk who has some athletic ability and has the chance to play for a travel sports team. The cost is $90. Family is headed by a single mother who has other young children. We feel this child would benefit from this program in social skills, discipline, physical exercise, and confidence, and are looking to fund their fee to join the team. If you would like to sponsor this child, or donate any amount toward this need, please visit the link below, and note Need #365 in the memo section.

NEW NEED #359 | WATAUGA
We have been made aware of a single mother in our community who needs a well dug. Her spring dried up and she now has a gravity-fed hose in the creek. She is afraid the hose will freeze in the winter. She has been given an estimate of $7000 to dig the well, and we are trying to help her gather a down payment for a small loan to pay for the job.

A young woman suffering from severe ataxia and mobility issues is living with her family in an older mobile home which is in desperate need of a new small AC unit. A floor or window unit would work best for their situation. If you have an AC unit to donate or would like to donate towards the purchase of one, please note NEED #354 in the donation.
