Community Request - I am not one to ask for help but usually the one helping. Since my best friend and roommate passed away and with the holidays, work has been slow and I've been unable to cover all the bills. Both, the electric and gas are due to be shut off this week (electric the 19th ($403.90) and gas ($167.80) the 21st) as I was only able to pay $23.83 towards the $403.93 electric bill. I make just over the income level for the assistant programs and no help available there. I don't have many options as far as friends or family either and that is why I'm asking for help here. Any help at all is appreciated.

Community Request - https://www.facebook.com/donate/1134291060064238/?fundraiser_source=external_url My son Lonnie Dean is in the hospital at Beacon Children's Hospital, we have been here 14 days. His illness came at a time that me, as a single mother, was already struggling to pay bills and put food on the table. Now I cannot work bc I am here 22 hours out of the days. I leave to take my 16 yr old son to school and leave to pick him up from school. All my focus is getting Lonnie Dean better because he is fighting for his life .came in with a cough and fever and now his body is septic, full of bacteria. He has had one surgery to remove bacteria from his right hip. Doctor's are baffled by his illness. If there is anyone out there that can help I'll take it. If you have any questions you can call me 5743181793 Thank you Nancy "Beth" Jessie

Community Request - I'm not looking for free help. What I am looking for is honest help. I have been trying to find someone local to help repair a brick/cement porch for the last couple of years and there seems to be no honest and reliable help anywhere. I know there is only a very small window remaining this year to have this taken care of but all I need is a honest, willing , reliable, and knowledgeable person to hire that will work hard and finish the job.

Community Request – Hi, my name is Sarah. My family and I are currently struggling to keep our house. My dad’s health isn't very good and he is retired. My mom is disabled and currently in the hospital with kidney failure. She has been through 17 surgeries and isn't getting better. My mom and dad also took in their 15 year old niece whose parents lost custody of her. I have a 6 year old son and am a single mother working to provide but it just isn't enough. We are behind over $6000 on our home and they are getting ready to foreclose if we don't have the money soon. My grandma passed away a year ago on August 31, 2017 and ever since then we are struggling to provide our house payment because her income helped as well. Having help from our community would certainly be a blessing for my family and me.

Community Request - Shortly after the start of the year, my now ex-girlfriend and I parted ways. While it wasn't exactly an amicable split, I still think kindly of her and her children. Last month, they lost everything they owned to an apartment fire. Currently, they are residing with her mother until they get on their feet. The children (11, twin boys; 3, girl) are truly awesome and deserve the world. Their mom certainly does her best in giving it to them, but could use an assist. Her name is Wynona Dennis and can be reached at 574.343.0452. Thanks so much for your help.

Community Request - I am a 43 year old female that up to a month ago thought everything was fine! I have five kids in my household two of which are my nieces. I was admitted to the hospital on Aug 13 in critical state later to find out that I will need a liver transplant. I was DX with autoimmune hepatitis and referred to IU hospital to meet with physicians. They said based on my numbers that I am a candidate for liver transplant. Currently going through all the pre testing just to get on list. I have appointments that take me away from work and my family which hurts financially. Plus medical bills are starting to roll in. I am trying to raise $10,000 for bills and keep us ahead of things and maintain the house. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Community Request –I am asking for help for my sister. She's on disability and gets very little money once a month. She had to let her trash service go, so her garage and part of her house is filling up with trash bags. She needs help with her lawn as trees are taking it over because she can’t cut them down because she doesn’t have the right tools or space. To make matters worse, back in January a pipe burst in her laundry room and she still has no way to do laundry except if she has a little change. If not, she wears dirty clothes. She found out she has mold behind the wall where the pipe burst and no way to fix it and she has nowhere to go if she loses the house. She has 2 dogs that aren’t adoptable because of their age and illnesses. Also, it would kill her if she had to give them up because they are all she has at times. So, as time passes she loses a little hope every day because of these things she can’t afford and doesn’t know anyone who is willing to help. So, I’m asking for any kind of help possible for her. Thank you.

Community Request - Hi! My grandparents are in need of some help. They raised me from a baby and they've helped me have a great life so now is my turn to help them. My grandpa was diagnosed with diabetes last year. It's been controlled with a new diet. Then 3 months ago, he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, which is cancer of the skull. He was given an estimated time frame of 2 years to live. He started treatment the next week. 2 weeks after his first treatment he ended up in the hospital with gangrene. He had to have surgery and landed himself in a rehabilitation/nursing home. Their insurance didn't deem the home medically necessary even though my grandpa had no balance and was still catheterized. They only covered a one week stay and he was there for almost a month, and at $400/ day it added up quick. They're stuck with a huge bill from both the hospital and the nursing home. And not to mention my grandpa wasn't able to get cancer treatment while hospitalized, he's missed out on a couple months of treatment. Our family is completely lost with what to do. But one thing I know, is it would mean so much if we could lessen the burden on both of them!

Community Request - At the end of June, my ex and I split up. My two handsome and amazing boys and I were forced to find a new place to call home. With just two weeks to find a place, I found one that is pretty pricy but I had no choice. The one job that works with my availability isn't cutting it with the bills and rent. I am still very late for rent and I am scared to death of being homeless and losing our home because of this. My oldest relies on me to get to school every morning and home every afternoon. I also take and pick up my youngest son and his step brother up to school every Mon-Thurs. My brakes are going bad in my car and I have to get those fixed as well as pay weekly for this car to get us around and everything. I am asking for help. It would be a huge weight lifted from my shoulders. I know there are many people out there that are worse off than we are so I understand if you guys help them. I would appreciate any help at this point!

Her 7 year old daughter is devastated and they some financial help getting past this as their insurance isn't nearly enough. Gwen is the most generous person I know. She's brought me food to work when I didn't have any. She's brought me gifts just because she felt like it. She doesn't deserve this kind of hardship. Although her GoFundMe only asks for $1000 she's in need of much more and could use any help.

Community Request - Hello. My family is in need of some help. My gofundme page is https://www.gofundme.com/SarahRessler. I am a mother of two young children and have been suffering from chronic Lyme disease for 7 years now. The treatments are not covered under insurance and are extremely expensive. I had to go down to working part time because I could not function at my full time job anymore and now the loss of income has added even more stress to our family the past several months. I am Christian and have faith that God will find a way to meet our needs. I try to give back to others. I have been a social worker for years and recently started doing behavior therapy for people with special needs. Anything will help, really! Thank you so much.

Community Request - New playground equipment for the bell head start in Niles! The school only gets so much funding.That funding has go be split up to distribute through every center in the tri county area. These kids are playing on hand me down old sun washed equipment. It breaks my heart because there equipment is probably appropriate for kids under 3. As you know most preschools consist of 3, 4 or 5 year old children. We are a government funded preschool offering learning to any low income family in the tri county area. I wish I had the money to purchase new equipment for the kids. These teachers work so hard and everyone else involved in making this place a success! I would love to see the kids faces light up when play time outside becomes exciting again! They deserve it!

Community Request - *Volunteers Needed* My name is Christin Kloski ,I am an organizer for West Side Wednesday. West Side Wednesday started in 2015 as a monthly lunch group and has grown into a popular community meetup. The group averages 45 people per monthly lunch outing. The group continues to increase every month, while focusing on trying new locations when possible to show the diverse collection of dining options the west side has to offer. With its increasing popularity, West Side Wednesday decided it was time to produce a festival celebrating the reason behind their mission - in a big way. In the summer of 2016, the west side of South Bend unexpectedly witnessed over 1,000 community members celebrating everything the neighborhood had to offer. This year, we will be featured in South Bend's Best. Week. Ever. as a signature event. We will be hosting "Best. Wednesday. Ever" on May 31st from 4-8 pm. With so many fun things and great activities, we are looking for volunteers to help the day run smoothly. We have also added a link for the volunteer form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe6aUheX97ozU6ljZ-XpPw0YB5EX-n4kEB7avpDJzbRyWkFNA/viewform Thank you and have a great evening,
