I’m the one who donates to things I feel passionate about. I’m not the one who asks for help. Now the fork is on the other plate. Thank you VCUM for coming to the rescue with bags of food and grocery store gift cards, and for letting me know that I can apply for food stamps and emergency mortgage assistance. Thank you for reassuring me that there is nothing to be ashamed of. Everyone has a story to tell and I’m not the first detached techie they’ve seen come through the doors.
Valley Churches United Missions is here to help keep mountain residents from becoming homeless. If you have a chance, please consider donating money or groceries and pet food to San Lorenzo Valley’s wonderful Valley Churches. If you live in SLV and need a hand to see you through, please know that you are welcome. www.vcum.org/

Wow! That’s inspirational! How did you find out about them? There’s another trade-last (Trade-last definition and meaning | Collins English Dictionary) in publishing that post on Santa Cruz Mountains Local. In airing your plight, someone may see it who’s in a position to offer you another job or link you with someone who can. Win-win, which is what a trade-last is all about besides making someone else feel good.
