ONE OF OUR OWN
NSB Police Officer and single Mom, Maggie, needed mold remediation in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian. Maggie’s home damage exceeded the limited assistance provided by FEMA. Smyrna Cares stepped up to the plate by donating $500 and will pay for the repairs through Habitat for Humanity.
GROWING UP QUICK
At 15 Jade was taking care of her 12-year-old sister so their Mom could work. Through the mentorship of Cudas Unhooked, she maintained her grades and held down a part-time job. Cudas asked Smyrna Cares for additional support of Jade’s family and we were thrilled to help. Jade is definitely going to make it in this world!
Volusia Pediatrics reached out to Smyrna Cares to help a struggling family with newborn twins. Their home was flooded from Hurricane Ian. Now faced without cribs, clothing and diapers (on top of a formula shortage) the family had to move in with relatives. Thanks to our generous donors this family enjoyed a bountiful holiday.
