Video of Jay’s Home on March 16, 2019
Now, let me tell you something about these two men – they are the most compassionate, generous souls I have ever met. When I was battling an autoimmune disease, Jay took me to doctor appointments and dialysis. He gave me a place to stay, the same home that was lost, for free. He cared for my dog when I was unable. He did this without wanting or expecting anything in return. And he always tried to do more, when there was nothing else to do. It is no exaggeration when I say I would not be alive today if it weren’t for Jay and his partner’s generosity and care.
Many other people have experienced the same generosity I have, personally and through their professional and volunteer work. Jay is a volunteer for Meals on Wheels, and Scott is a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) at Good Samaritan. Fitting, right? Two good Samaritans who never stop giving, even when they can’t afford to. Jay and Scott amaze me. I want to return their kindness.
I can’t imagine the emotions they are experiencing, literally losing everything except each other and their fur babies, and having to let go of a life they have spent decades building, to start over. Please, consider helping these two wonderful men start over. Anything is appreciated.
