Ameenah's Deen has taken up it's first charity. Those who are able to contribute are encouraged to do so! Please email Ameenah at [email protected] with any questions.
This is Judy. She is a homeless woman here in Chicago. Judy is currently Catholic, but is not able to find help at any nearby churches. She is not yet 62 years old so she is not eligible for social security benefits yet. She will not be eligible until 2014. I communicate regularly with Judy and have watched as she has given away her last penny to other homeless people before sleeping at night on a cold bench where she is continuously awakened by cars passing by and other homeless people constantly disturbing her and sometimes stealing from her.
This woman is kind and genuine. I do not want to see her on the streets for one more winter. Recently, Judy was hit by a car and the driver left the scene. She suffers from a broken ankle and a broken collar bone. She has no family that will take her in and we have no place for her either...yet! Please help us help this woman.
If you cannot spare any money for Judy, then please send food and clothes to:
Laura "Judy" Fillicetti
756 N Western Ave
Chicago, IL 60612
Currently, Judy is wearing a medium-large size shirt and I would say size 10-12 jeans or medium sweatpants. Judy could also use a first aid kit. She is in desperate need for a CTA card (Bus card) so she can sleep on the buses instead of on the bench. You can buy a bus card online at http://www.transitchicago.com/travel_information/fares/unlimitedridecards.aspx
Any and all help would be sincerely appreciated.
PLEASE share this link and spread the word. I wouldn't influence this if I didn't believe in this wonderful person of God!
