We get a "THANK YOU" every once in a while but this one was special.
Last summer I met Larry and his wife. They had just gotten off the streets and into an apartment.
Larry ask me if we could help him out with a mattress because the one he had was sagging in the middle. I said "No Problem" - Because it has been no problem meeting the needs that come to TPN due to people like you who support us. It really is amazing… we have had no need that we could not fill.
Anyway - as you may recall… we put the word out that we needed a mattress.
Immediately Sandy Griffin found a king mattress - we just had to pick it up.
While we were trying to arrange pickup - Larry called and told me that he had gotten some pillow cases and sheets and pillows delivered by UPS. Then he called and said that a complete new bed was delivered - and by week end a new mattress for the bed - comforter and all the FRU FRU stuff that goes to making a bed look nice.
I checked my sources and found that someone had gotten the request for a mattress - and went on line and purchased everything.
Larry and his wife were so grateful.
So I get a call from Larry this week to thank us for our help.
He told me that he has a job - his wife has a job and life is good.
THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT
People helping People.
Larry is off the streets - out of the dirt and doing well.
Thanks to all for your faithfulness and support of those in need.
