Summer Serving Opportunities

Hi Neighbor

I hope you are staying out of the heat and enjoying some much needed vacations... it sure is "swimmin" weather.

Cary Grove Neighborhood Life has been busy all summer raising funds through our Lemonade Stands for our Feed the Hungry Campaign, giving away dollars at our $1 car washes for our Reach In Reach Out theme, and assisting our neighbors after tragedy struck. Thanks to all of you who have served our community this summer. There still is time to "Pay it Forward"  with some great summer projects. See below...

Some of you have been asking how the Grimm family is doing now that a few weeks have gone by since their terrible fire.
With the help of insurance they were finally able to get a new car, and computer. They are in temporary housing and will start the re-build soon after the old house is removed... so they have started to enjoy the summer a little. They wanted me to tell you all how overwhelmed they have been with generosity from this community. Every time I talk with Devon and Lee all they talk about is all the blessings they have received. Their current prayer request is for the bottom line insurance amount for the house replacement to be what they need to replace their home. You will hear more from that family in my next newsletter.

Keep looking up Cary Grove... God is good all the time!

year WITH $246.17 in donations. Giving Cub Scout Pack 857

Letter from one of our grateful customers:

Dear Cary Grove Neighborhood Life,
I am so grateful for the $25 Thornton's gift card you gave to me at the $1 "Pay It Forward" car wash in Cary last month. With the $25 saved in gas, I was able to pay for a haircut and buy some over the counter medicine I needed.
You jump started my Christian religion again and I have been trying to pay it forward to others as I am able and as much as I can. I used to be able to volunteer in the 1990"s for the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County, a wonderful organization like yours. I will use the gas to drive to Woodstock to attend their pancake breakfast outdoors tomorrow.
Mrs. S K

Thanks Jan Hildman for your help at the last car wash...pictured below
