Firewood for my parents

$800 of $800 goal

Raised by 20 people in 44 months
As most of my friends know, my parents have been out of work for a couple years now. My father was laid off from a job of 36 years at the mill. My mom has too many health problems to name them. She has tried for disability but is too proud to keep trying after three years of getting turned down. My dad is currently going to school for welding and will be finished in November. In the meantime he has found odd jobs here and there. At his age everyplace he has applied for a job they have turned him down. In Maine it's very hard economic times and jobs are hard to find. My mom does do housework here and there to make extra money even though her doctors have put her on high restrictions, she recently just had a stroke.  My parents burn wood for heat, they called to apply for Maine to provide wood for them, but the state dropped the ball and has made a very late appt for them so they don't even know if they will get accepted. Maine winters are rough. It takes atleast 6 cords of wood for a mild winter. They will most likely need 8 or more this year.  I'm doing what I can scrambling around on Craigslist to find them some wood and even thinking of driving some up there too them. But they need help.  They can't pay their mortgage. Their light bills and all their utilitys. They are slowly getting all shut off notices.
My friends know I never ask for anything if I really need it.  And I'm not asking for me. I'm asking for my parents, who would never ask for help themselves. They are too proud, but they need help... any kind of donation would much appreciated. Along with sharing this story .
Thank you to all my friends who have helped now and in the past. God bless. ❤️ 
You can donate here or to my PayPal as friends and family as well. Send me a message and I will provide that info.

PS.. for those of you who know mynatents I would appreciate if you didn't go to them and offer help. They are very proud people. I have raised money from them before butnit came from me personally and they went out thank you cards after.

There are few causes more worthy than stopping Common Core in CT. Your children and theirs are counting on us to preserve their liberty. Help to regain control of our local schools, they are our children, not the states.

There is no empirical data in the history of American education that supports a correlation between changing standards and testing that suggest they improved learning, teaching, or America's ability to compete globally. There is however a trail of wasted tax dollars that go back over three decades. Respectfully, Dr. Jesse Turner Professor of Reading and Language Arts
