Help for an islander | Letter

An older hardworking woman finally confided in me about her circumstances. She, alone, cares for several family members. Debt is causing severe problems, which I promised her I would not reveal, as she hates to “impose” or ask for help.

Most people know how I try to help and improve the lives of those in need. This is one of the most important. Please donate whatever you can to help pay off her $8,000 debt. Trust me, she alone is up against a situation no one would want to be faced with. An account has been set up for her in my name – Jennie Joplin – at Key Bank in Eastsound. The bank knows the account. Bless their hearts for being more than willing to help.
