Marie from Detroit, Mi

Retired & raising my grandson. I need a sleeper sofa to give him a good night's rest.

I'm doing my best to raise my grandson on a fixed income. A place to sleep is essential for him to start each day rested and ready.


After working in a school for years, I retired and I'm now on a fixed income. I'm doing my best to help out my family.

My goals are to move into a bigger apartment so my grandson can go to another school for an better education. My personal goal is being able to help out others in senior homes as a volunteer.

I need a sofa and a bed for my grandson. I had to throw out my old sofa years ago and haven't had a comfortable place to sit since.

Meeting this need will help me because we will have a place to sleep and sit on a sofa to relax on.
