Save Mary Houck's Historic Home

“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others”.         -Booker T. Washington

This best describes our friend, Mary Houck, who goes out of her way to make life beautiful for others.  Mary has always made her family her priority before meeting her own needs.  Her family is defined as not only her brother, son, nephew, etc., but extends to friends, coworkers, neighbors, the homeless, and animals.  Assisting daily in the mental health community, she dedicates her service to stabilize clients and ensure their needs are met.  She is also a tireless animal advocate/rescuer for cats, dogs and farm animals, and puts her loyal furry friends’ needs before her own, incurring all expenses out of her own pocket.  A woman who has always devoted herself to others is now in need of our help.  Having recently suffered a fire at her historic home, circa 1853, she is going through a very difficult time financially.  She is currently unable to meet her out of pocket expenses to repair fire damages and replace other necessities. 

Our goal to meet for Mary’s expenses is $3,500.  Any amount donated will help and be very much appreciated.   Let us follow Mary’s example by making a difference with the gift of giving.
