Family in Need

All, thank you so much for donations for the family in need. Aronda (our Social Worker) took her the donations today and checked on the family and they are so very appreciative of the donations. I am asking that you read below to find additional details about the situation.


The mom has two children here at BHES (Kindergartener & 2nd grader). She was pregnant with a new daughter whose name would have been Raina Lee. She did not have life insurance for Raina yet since she was unborn, however, they still have to hold a funeral due to the method of delivery and size of the baby. She is unable to work and needs a lot of help with replacing work pay, with food, and with funeral expenses. This is all a sudden shock to the family and they are really in need. On our home visit today, conditions are good for the children but there is a great need. Christmas has already been covered by the awesome generosity of BHES staff, community and friends.

So, with that being said, if you would like to make an additional donation, please do so in the main office by Wednesday of next week and I'll deliver the donations later that day or the next day.


Thank you all in advance.
