Having 5 wonderful children is truly a blessing, but when Dave entered the Leon Mayer Fund office, he was not feeling very thankful. He had just lost his job, and the looming holidays threatened to bring additional stress instead of the usual joy. Dave had already approached a few local organizations, but they had told him they were not equipped to handle a case of his magnitude.
Our first step was finding out Dave’s skills so we could find him a temporary job. It took a few quick phone calls, and we set up a few interviews. The second step was to ensure that Dave had food on his table. The Leon Mayer Fund have him some Gourmet Glatt Cards to cover his family while he was job-hunting.
Lastly, Dave’s family was added to our Delivery list, and they joined the hundreds of families getting deliveries of basic necessities, some extras and yes even some toys for the kids. Dave is now once again working full time and he is so grateful to the Leon Mayer Fund for getting him through that difficult period with his dignity intact.
