Urgent need for single mom with 2 young children
Urgent need for single mom with two small children attending a Fairhope elementary school. We’ve had her car checked out and it cannot be repaired. She desperately needs dependable transportation to avoid losing her job. The donation of a car is a huge request but would greatly meet the need of this family. Or…any monetary donations will be used to purchase a reliable used car. neighborhood bridges is partnering with Family Promise and local school counselors to help this family. Any donation is tax deductible. neighborhood bridges is a 501c3 charity. Thank you for your kindness in helping this family.

Lori Terral - Area Director
I have been a resident in Fairhope since 2004. It is truly a pleasure to call Fairhope my home, I wanted to see this community thrive and do what we can to make it the best it can be. Neighborhood Bridges is a wonderful outreach of kindness to the children in our community, that is all done anonymously. I was asked to be an area director along with two other ladies. It has been so exciting to see how giving our community is, so many needs have been filled already. I am a graduate of LSU, and have been a stay at home mom. I am married to Gregg Terral and I have 4 grown children. I also have one beautiful granddaughter!
