My wife and I met this family a couple of days ago after our north College Park resident Jackie Kelly sent an email asking for help.

She wrote “I met them on Tues. when they were walking in our neighborhood that day the heat index was close to 105, The father does odd jobs and has been cutting grass to make money to cover the motel and food.”

A couple of neighbors have been trying to help with funds and food, however, they need some immediate help to pay the motel bill, until they find a house to live. The father asked me yesterday if I know any basement where he can move. Also, he needs a job that can cover the expenses long term. If you know of any basement for rent or a job, please let me know.

A GoFundMe account has been set up. Your generosity will be much appreciated. Here is the link.
