Opportunities for Kindness

Senior In Need of Assistance with Windows

An Advocate with Syntero has reached out to us about a senior client living on a fixed income who is in need of help with her old and very drafty windows. The senior is a cancer survivor and has other serious health conditions, as well as being immunocompromised. The drafty windows have increased her heating bills by quite a bit because of the amount of cold air coming into her condo. She has gotten estimates to have the 4 windows replaced and the lowest estimate is $5,200.  She has no family to help with this cost. She has savings of $1000 to put towards the windows. Dublin Bridges is hoping to raise $2000 for her windows and will seek $2000 from another agency that may be able to help. If you would like to donate to this need, please go to http://bit.ly/donatedublin.
