This campaign is to cover a house cleaner to help Melissa and Darren so they can focus on their children and each other - rather than the dishes and vacuuming.
If you are blessed with children, you can appreciate the hectic schedules and energy of small children. Add the complexity of a small child with special needs (doctor appointments several times per month, organizing in-home care givers, and frequent trips to urgent care) and like Spinal Tap - it goes to 11. If you aren’t a parent, you can only start to imagine the complexity and demands of their current lives. As a community, we are coming together to help Darren and Melissa lighten their burdens, relieve some stress and let them know we are truly there to assist them as friends, neighbors and a community.
We’re attempting to raise $325 per month to cover a house cleaner. If you can cover one month, or even the whole year, please do. If you can only contribute $20 per month (less than a night at the movies) please do. Please donate what you can - many hands make light work.
We’ll pay for whatever our funds allow. If you can make a recurring donation, that would be best - so we can pay for this service on an ongoing basis - or at least until Devin graduates from high school :-)
