Maverick Needs Your Help

Dear Friends,

Maverick needs your help and support.   He was recently let go from his job, a job he loved, and was good at.  He was employed at Menards for over two years.  His life has been anything but easy, he was homeless, played his music in the subways of Chicago so he could eat.  Yet, he is always happy, loving and kind.  He does not speak of where he came from, he's so blessed to be where he is.  He never asks why me? Or complains about what he doesn't have, he just so happy to have what he has.  The loss of his job means the loss of everything that is dear to him, his home, his health, his identity.

Theresa found him singing in the subway one day and new they were destined to be musical partners.  She literally saved his life.  Two years ago he was able to get his very first apartment EVER, and is now at risk of losing everything.  

He is 57 years old, has no health insurance, no family he can depend on,  and is unable to even collect unemployment.  He has a health issue in which he needs medication for, without a job and income, he has no way to purchase his medication.  We are trying to raise $3000 thousand dollars  to cover all his expenses for  three a month timeframe.   Mav is a person that needs to be busy, he needs to be productive, and he is a proud man in need of help.

We are all so blessed in so many ways, please help us raise the funds, whatever you can find in your heart to give, $5 or $10 it adds up and you will be part of saving a life.

If you know of anyone who is looking for a hard, dedicated worker, please let Theresa Rowe know.  Mav does not drive, he does have a bicycle, bus pass, so employment in the city would be preferable.

Thank you for your kindness, may God continue to bless you.
