June lives with most, and helps support and care for, all of her 12 grandchildren. The mother of 5 of them (Isaiah 14, Jewel 14, Matthew 11, Jonny 10, an Rylee 7) was killed 4 years ago. June's daughter, Edie, has no income and is the mother of 5 of the grandchildren. June's father, 78, also has no income. June's husband has been unemployed , and receives SSI. "My grandchildren and I have never asked for help. We felt others needed more than we do. After seeing and reading the GL web site, I decided it is time to ask for help. We are behind in our utility bills, and are always running our of food and personal care items. I have heard of programs, but never actually thought anyone would call me and ask what we needed help with like GiveLocally did. In a way I was left with no words. I grew up poor, but never actually knew how poor, as my parents worked hard for what little we had and there was never any sign of our situation. My parents seemed to be happy, so in some ways I felt rich although we weren't. Times when I was younger were different. I know now that there are others like me and that there is people out there who do care and want to help. It amazes me that this may happen for us. Thank you GiveLocally. For your program to even consider my family is more than words I can find to type and say thanks."
