I have always really liked our parish. They have a lot of programs to help others, whether you are a member of the parish or not. We have a St Vincent de Paul center that collects food for the needy and also helps the poor with bills. We have a Parish Assistance Committee to help members of the parish with meals, transportation and light housekeeping.
I have been contacted a number of times to make a meal for someone that just had a baby, someone that just came home from the hospital or someone that is going through cancer treatments. I haven't been asked to help with transportation, but I have been willing to do that if asked. :shrug:
Now I am in need. I have contacted the committee three times. Once in person and twice by email. I am completely overwhelmed by the LACK of any response. :banghead: Today, my son missed a class because he didn't have a ride and I can't leave the house. How is it that I am there when someone needs help, but when I need help, no one is around?? Grrrrrr
