Hyde Park Kenny needs our HELP!

Hi friends - I'm reaching out to you on behalf of our friend Kenny. Many of you know him from the Hyde Park neighborhood. He's the much loved man who rides around 53rd and Harper in his wheelchair with his 3 Chihuahuas sharing his lap. We made instant friends when I first moved to Hyde Park because we bonded over our love for Chihuahuas. I absolutely adore him and look forward to seeing him daily. 

Kenny received news today from his landlord he's being evicted. He's lived in the same place for over 20 years. He's 85 years old and has no family to lean on for assistance. He's in a wheelchair and has 3 dogs he loves very much. They are his whole life and he's very worried about being separated from them. 

We're in the process of learning more about the eviction proceedings meanwhile we need to raise funds for him, he's in a very dire situation. I'm thankful he came to me today to ask for help. He came by ModCo with tears in his eyes and showed me the letter.  My heart shattered for him, what is he going to do? That's where we come in. I assured him there are many, many people that care about him and are willing to help.

This is what community is all about, helping each other. Please consider donating to Kenny so we can get him into a better living situation.
