The $1,000 check was donated to help alleviate abject poverty through The Haitian Timoun Foundation. But I wanted the “plop” of that stone to send multiple ripples of assistance in every direction of need. An additional $5,500 was distributed to provide aid related to other International food & medical emergencies; local centers for homeless & family abuse victims; medical debt resolution; veterans’ assistance; service dog training; minority scholarships; grief counseling; adoption facilitation; and prison ministry, among them PMLC-sponsored Mosaic, Journey of Hope, Lutheran World Relief and North Texas Food Bank.
