I sincerely thank you for whatever your heart directs you to give, Please keep her & her family in your hearts & prayers.

I am a retired 911 emergency services dispatcher and also a proud military veteran. I live in the house I grew up in, in what is now an impoverished area of hardworking residents interspersed with others who are either borderline "criminal" or career welfare recipients, I have a neighbor family that includes a stay at home mom, a dad who works a minimum wage job, a disabled teenage boy, and a 14 yr old girl who will start high school next month (August 2012). The girl Elizabeth has been an honor roll student for the 5 years that I have known her family. She takes extra evening classes when available during the school year, and summer school every summer in order to stay ahead of the game. Her dream is to be the first in her family to earn a college degree and to go into teaching at the middle-school level. Elizabeth needs a computer, printer and supplies to enable her to attend high school on a par with her peers. I truly believe that I, together with some caring friends, can make a difference in helping this young woman become a responsible contributing member of American society and the community in which she lives.
