An ARC owner informed Change for a Dollar that her neighbor was recently hospitalized and diagnosed with a very serious and rare lung disease. The prognosis is very poor and he is being treated at MUSC. Also, the wife of the sick gentleman only recently stated a new job and has no paid leave to visit and stay with her husband while he is in the hospital. Her boss has been very supportive but there is a loss of income now as well. While the neighbors have been very helpful to the family the loss of the wife’s income on top of everything else has put additional strains on the family. Change for a Dollar helped out the family with some gas cards to cover the cost of repeated trips downtown to MUSC. Additionally, they were given some BiLo food cards to help relieve some of the strain on the budget.
Amount: Gas Card & BiLo food card - $250
