Letter # 160 Senior woman asks for a microwave and food gift cards Letter # 160

I am writing this letter to you on behalf of Carole who lives in Santa Rosa.

I am writing to you today because Carole has a problem. Carole is a widowed 77 year old woman who is housebound and frail. She is unable to drive and has memory and vision loss and high blood pressure. She is still recovering from her hip surgery so has very limited mobility. She lives below the poverty level and receives daily meals from Meals on Wheels and a monthly food box.

I am hoping that Secret Santa can help Carole out by granting this wish. Carole needs gift cards for food. Often, her Meals on Wheels is the only food she has for the day and the delivery person is the only person she sees. She also needs a microwave to heat up her food. Due to her hip, she is unable to stand for long and shouldn't be using a stove or oven anyway due to her memory issues. She could also use a gift card for some simple warm clothes.

If Carole were able to get this help from Secret Santa it would help. Carole would be a much healthier and stronger person if she has enough food and enough warm clothes. She also would be living in a safer situation if she had a microwave.

By checking this box you agree to fulfill this wish.
