Help Kendall Heal

49476074_1594261078847863_r.jpegKendall Smith is the essence of selflessness, love and kindness, and is loyal to his family, friends and co-workers. He rarely raises his voice and handles challenges with dignity and grace. Kendall is one of many who has been financially and economically affected by COVID-19 when his position  was eliminated, in early July, at Tapestry, a fashion company  also hit hard by Corona. He adjusted his lifestyle to the decrease in his monthly income and was set to move out of his apartment into shared accommodations by the end of July. 

 On the first Monday of July, Kendall blacked-out outside a NY deli and slammed his head into the cement pavement. An ambulance was called and he sustained injuries to his jaw, breaking it in three places, along with breaking and losing some teeth. He underwent surgery to wire his jaw shut for 6-8 weeks and, at that time, doctors will then address repairing his teeth. The medical fees incurred with the ambulance, surgery, follow-ups and dental work will be exorbitant. Due to his unemployment status, his medical and dental insurance terminates 7/31. He made arrangements to continue limited medical insurance, but his dental insurance ends. Because of these injuries, Kendall won’t be able to look for employment for at least two months and will need to cover expenses on his own.  If you know Kendall, you will agree that he is truly worthy of being thought of during this time. Please consider contributing and donating to his medical situation and also reaching out to him, through text, during this period. He would love to hear from you as he begins to heal both mentally and physically.
