Molly’s worker called the office late yesterday afternoon. Molly is one of our many individuals living in Ottawa that struggle to survive off a meager disability cheque as she is in no position to work due to her mental health issues. Once her rent and utilities are paid, she makes do with less than $200 for the month….for clothing, food, transportation, entertainment, everything!! Imagine…not even $200 in your pocket to live off of for the next 30 days!
Molly has been wearing the same winter jacket for the past ten years. She liked it will enough. It was a wool blend and warm but alas, even wool blend jackets wear out eventually. And now her worker is looking for an organization to donate a coat so that Molly can stay warm over the winter.
God is so good! Just this week, a thoughtful donor had brought in a beautiful, down filled, almost new, mid-length woman’s jacket in you guessed it….Molly’s exact size! To the donor of the jacket, Molly wants you to know how thankful she is.
