A disabled woman who is a regular guest at Expanding the Table had a recent traumatic experience. During the night she was a victim of a home invasion while she slept. Thankfully she was unharmed. The intruders kicked in her door and stole her fanny pack with her wallet etc. that was located just inside the door. She lost her ID cards, food stamps and $150 in cash. Change for a Dollar was asked for assistance. The apartment maintenance man did not do a very good job on repairing her door dead bolt /door jamb so C4$ helped make it more secure. When we inquired as to what her other needs were she said she really needed a new manual wheelchair that she was saving for to use in the house. She uses a motorized one when venturing outside. Change for a Dollar assisted by getting her a new wheel chair. Other volunteers have assisted in getting her documentation, etc. replaced as well.
