Thank you to ALDI for donating gift cards to Always Home! For our client families who spend more than 30% of their monthly income on rent, help paying the grocery bill makes a big difference. Preventing family homelessness is all about keeping families housed and ALDI's contribution helps.
When a family is living paycheck to paycheck, rent, food, gas for the car and other basic needs take priority. There's never much left for other things. Always Home thanks the MOMS Club of Groton, Ledyard, Mystic and Stonington for donating backpacks filled with school essentials. Because of their generosity, 20 boys and girls will return to school with new packs on their backs and smiles on their faces. Left to right: Marlynn Benker and Trisha Shah of Always Home
Marlynn Benker, Always Home's Social Worker, with Carrie and her "new" car Depending on public transportation and friends has been a difficult way to get to and from work for this mother of two teenage boys. Carrie, a dedicated home care aide, was the first person Always Home's Social Worker, Marlynn Benker, thought of when a generous donor gave us a Honda Odyssey. Valenti Stateline Motors made it road-ready so that Carrie is now the happy recipient of her "Wheels to Work".
