Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Helping Hand

--by sunny9874, posted Oct 2, 2007

I volunteer at a charity on fridays. I take calls and assess needs and then find churches to fill those needs. Everything is done over the phone. I have been wanting to make a connection and today I got the chance. Someone called in about a developmentally disabled young woman who had a one year old son.

She used her whole check to pay a deposit on an apartment and had no money left to feed her son. He had been eating tater tots cooked in a microwave for three days. She literally has nothing but an apartment, a bed and a microwave.

My friend and I decided to try and reach out and help this woman. We rounded up food and diapers, pots pans, utensils, toilet paper ---  a whole truck load of donated stuff and went to meet her. Tomorrow we are taking her a sofa and chair that someone donated.she was very shy because she stutters. The baby was so cute. She was very happy to see us. Hopefully she is going to be open to us mentoring her. We will be trying to build a relationship with her and her son.

It is very fullfilling to help someone in this way, to actually see a face and know that we helped.
