Ms. Dann from Detroit, MI

I'm spending my extra money on laundry. A washer & dryer will help me save for a car.

An energy efficient washer and dryer will help me save money for a car and allow me to wash clothes efficiently.


Very Grateful and Blessed Jun 27, 2014

Ms. Dann wanted to thank her donors for all the support and donations received. She says she is very grateful and blessed to have not only reached her requested amount but surpass it! Thanks to Benevolent she will be able to save money for a car and continue to build her new life.


I am from Detroit. I'm an eagar learner and am most happiest when I do a good deed. I am most proud of the accomplishments I've made in the last year.

My goal is to save money so that I can buy a cheap car in the near future. Right now the extra money is being used to try to keep my family clean and decent.

My current situation is I am participating in a supportive housing program with COTS. I am coming from a homeless situation and I need help rebuliding my life and making a home for my children.

Meeting this need will help me because I spend a lot of money a month on laundry and that money could be used for other things like clothes, shoes for my children or savings for a car. Also I do not have any transportation so it is difficult to get to the laundry mat and wash and my children need clean clothes for school.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Ms. Dann fund this need.

I met Ms. Dann when she entered into the supportve housing program at COTS. I became her case planner.

I think meeting this need is important because this will allow her to save money on laundry and concentrate on her other goals such as getting a vehicle.

Ms. Dann is a determined person who continues to make strides in this program. Since I have known her she has move into a home and maintained her bills while being a single mom. She supports her family as best she can.
