Joanna C. and 2 children — Household and Clothing Goal Reached!

Joanna is overcome with emotion over the generosity of the community. The Wimberley community donated furniture, household items, clothing, and cash for her children's clothing and shoes! The Thrift Shoppe on RR 12 also offered Joanna help. With these donations, she is in a secure home with basic necessities and can focus on work, school and getting her daughter healthy!

Need:

Joanna C. and two children need help from the community for household items and clothing.

Circumstances:

The 2-bedroom house that Itzel, a WGN board member, found for her fell through. The previous tenants of the 2-bedroom property were upset they had to move and wrecked it so badly that the landlord has extensive repairs he has to fit in with other full-time work. He said it won’t be ready for months, if ever. We’re working with her current landlord (who himself is on a limited budget) to fix up her place. He’s purchased a refrigerator, air conditioner, there is a bunk bed and bedding space, and an added stove with oven. The money the community raised for her is restricted funds that will be used to help pay her current rent, which she is thankful for because Joanna hasn’t been able to work full-time due to her daughter’s medical care, earning only $400/week. We’ve received permission from one donor to use funds to purchase a storage unit for the property because the house is small.

Joanna needs the following items:

Furniture items:

  • Chest of drawers — donated 
  • Wardrobe to hang clothing — donated
  • Small dining table with chairs — donated
  • Curtains for windows: three windows — donated

Household:

  • Pillows and pillowcases — donated
  • A deep pot — donated
  • Knives and cutting board — donated

Clothing:

Joanna wears between size 12 and 14 and needs all items. Her daughter is 10 years old, wears size 14 and size 4Y shoes. Her son is 16 and wears 34 pants, medium shirt, size 9.5-10 shoes size. Her son, who now works at Wimberley Cafe, really needs pants, shirts and sneakers. Her daughter needs sandals and shoes she can wear to church with a dress. She also needs shorts. They all need pajamas, robes, house slippers. — donated

In Rhonda’s own words:

"It makes me uncomfortable asking for things. I’m embarrassed to have to ask for something so expensive."

Rhonda B. — Goal Reached!

Typically WGN helps people who have needs in the $500-$3000 price range. Rhonda B. was forwarded to us by another nonprofit in Wimberley, and we want to try to help her since she's out of options. Dan Malin of Capital City Roofing, LLC has been working with us and keeping margins low to help Rhonda. He recommended that she roof the main structure of her house first, so that she is in a dry, safe home. Thank you, Dan! We will keep raising money for her breezeway and garage.

Joanna C. and 2 children — Goal Reached!

Joanna lives in central Wimberley with her 10-year-old daughter and 16-year-old son. They all live in one room without a kitchen for $800 a month. She called us asking for rent help, but we think it makes more sense to help her move out of the situation she’s living in. Joanna lived here for 15 years with her husband. Her 2 children were born here (CTMC), then five years ago they returned to Guanajuato, Mexico. She tried to make it work with her husband, but her daughter became very sick without running water and developed kidney problems that she still suffers from. Joanna came back to Wimberley in December; she is a U.S. citizen and so are her children. She had a cleaning job at Camp Lucy for several months until she switched to the kitchen at Deer Creek of Wimberley. Her manager at Camp Lucy extolled her as a worker: “She always showed up on time, filled in for other employees and was a very hard worker. I wish she had stayed and there were more like her.”
