Because Callie cannot earn enough income to afford daycare for her four-year-old and two-year-old children, her husband was the sole income earner in their home. When her husband’s job shut down because of COVID-19, they did not have funds to last them even for two weeks.
They were running out of food and diapers and were a month behind on their electricity bill, when Callie wrote to Together Rising: “We need help.”
Callie could not believe it when a check arrived from you in her mailbox.
“Is it real?” she asked?
