A woman on disability and her son live in a mobile home. The son works in a fast-food establishment for less than $8.00 an hour. The furnace needed a new motor in anticipation of the coming cold weather. She worked diligently to find a company who could do the work on her furnace for a reasonable amount. Although her car also needs work, she decided that the furnace is a higher priority. Fairy Godmothers paid for the furnace repair before the cold weather set in.
VEHICLE INSURANCE PREMIUMS
A single mother living in public housing works as a housekeeper, but her hours and pay are not great considering most of her hours come from the football games. When she is working, her little son is taken care of by her neighbor. As of late, she has been walking to work because she does not have car insurance and does not want to get pulled over with no insurance. Fairy Godmothers paid the 6 month policy premium for her.
A woman recently moved here from another state because she got approved for section 8 housing here. When she moved here, she quickly found a job as a housekeeper.

Fairy Godmothers bought her a bed.
