84 yr widow with huge expense needs help

UPDATE UPDATE: We have a firm quote in hand for $5,450.00 to replace the drain field! Much better than $6,700 or $7,500 as originally proposed by other companies. We are celebrating!! As of right now, we have raised $5,650.00 between the two campaigns and cash donations. Anything we raise over and above $5,650 (as we must pay small fees to Go Fund Me &Facebook for the campaign services) will go towards paying her taxes that are due. We are still trying to raise $$. So please consider giving to this campaign. We want to help her as much as possible. The money will go directly to the debt on her behalf and not to her bank account. ———————— Some of you know me as the woodworking gal who loves tools and wears a lot of t-shirts and jeans. This Christmas, we are raising money for an 84-year dear widow I have known for 15 plus years. She has a HUGE NEED - a new drain field

Her current drain field has been pumped a few times over the last six months, but several pumping companies and experts have told her that she needs a new drain field as soon as possible. The pricing ranged from $6,000 to $7,500, depending on the company quoting.

From the research I have done, it is just a matter of time before raw sewage starts to back up into the showers and toilets. We had it pumped a few weeks ago and was told it would last about a month if she uses toilets and water sparingly. How do you do that? br />
As a widow who is trying to manage her household on minimal funds, $6,700 is not something she has available. The house needs minor repairs and general maintenance, which can be done by volunteers; however, the real need is a new drain field.

This Christmas, would you consider donating to this worthy cause to help this sweet woman? 

Every little bit helps.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.
