This weekend, a family was in a very dire situation and a group of caring people volunteered their time and abilities to help them through the situation.
Without sharing too much detail into the specifics, the husband of a couple that lived alone had an episode and disappeared from the home. His wife had been stranded on the floor for an extended period of time. After a concerned neighbor contacted police, the situation was immediately addressed. The couple is now safe and taken care of.
Now is a good time for us to extend a virtual high five and big thank you to all of the people out there volunteering their time and energy to help others in need. Without the loving support of people that care, a lot of people in harm’s way would never find their way into a safe situation. Many times, these volunteers get nothing in return other than a smile and the feeling that somebody is better off today than they were yesterday. Most times, this is enough for these kindhearted people.
AZCAL members were brought into the situation because they had their ears and hearts open. Fortunately, the people brought in to help had the networking necessary to take care of the situation quickly and efficiently. While thanking all those who helped this weekend and those who help on a daily basis, we just want to extend our sympathies for those who are dealing with great pain on a daily basis. It can get better, and we will continue striving to make it so.
AZCAL could not have been successful in addressing the issue without the help of Kopp’s Construction & Renovation for rehabilitating the home and Integrity Hospice for the care they provided. Thank you for all the hard work and for lighting the way a little each and every day!
