Sometimes it takes a village

My sister, Sherry, is a single mom with 4 adopted children and is a teacher in El Paso, TX.  We all have ups and down, but this week has been more downs than up... her car broke down on the side of a highway, had it towed home after her friends husband couldn't get it running, had a friend drive her to work and someone else bring her home only to find out that half her electric in her house didn't work..... this on top of a cracked toilet earlier in the week.  Thank goodness she has a 2nd toilet, but she has 7 people in her house right now, because she is also helping our brother and his girlfriend until they can afford an apartment.  So now she needs a plumber, electrician AND a mechanic.  We all know how expensive and critical these services are  and almost impossible for a single person with 4 children on a teacher's salary.  All of our family lives on the East coast, so there is no-one (except the brother staying with her, who is not handy in these areas) to help her.  She had helped so many people through the years, whether through teaching or as a foster mom, maybe we can help her?  Any amount will help!!!! Thank you so much!!!!
