Praise God, in November, Marybeth found a studio apartment that she could afford that was in walking distance to her job and would accept her 10 pound dog. On December 1, friends and members of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Norwood Park, with the assistance of a truck from Lutheran Church Charities, helped Marybeth move into her new apartment.
Thank you to all the LCC volunteers who came out Thursday, November 1, to help load the truck with food, medical supplies, flood buckets, and disaster response supplies that are on the way to Panama City, Florida, to assist Hurricane Michael survivors.
