Dear Reb Eli,
I hope you and your family had an enjoyable and uplifting Yom Tov.
On one hand, my Yom Tov was very nice as all of my kids were here, but at the same time, it was an emotional roller coaster as you can imagine.
Now that things are settling down a bit, I want to be in touch to tell you how appreciative I am for the check you sent me. Since my wife passed away on Tisha B’Av, my 11 children and I have been facing many emotional difficulties and challenging situations. In the number of weeks following the funeral there were so many various expenses. Loosing a spouse and mother whose income also helped pay the bills was overwhelming. Your organization, Avigdor’s Helping Hand, significantly eased this difficult period for our family by lessening the financial burden. A few thousand dollars made a very significant difference to our large family at that time, and we are thankful.
Hashem should reward all of the volunteers/staff at Avigdor’s Helping Hand.
Read MoreDear Mr. Glaser and the entire staff of Avigdor’s Helping Hand:From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank everyone who made my daughter’s wedding a beautiful possibility. Because of you and your generous “gift” my daughter was married last Wednesday with dignity and with her head held high. This would not have been possible without your generous help. I am in and out of the hospital undergoing painful chemotherapy. Only with chasdei Hashem was I allowed to come out and take my daughter to her chupa. Without her father and with her mother confined to the hospital I was unable to shop with her and do all of the things that a mother does with her daughter for her wedding. With your help she was able to get a wedding gown and all of the necessities for her big day.Words cannot express my feelings for your generous chessed and help. May Hashem always help you continue in this important work. I know the difference it made in our lives. There is no one more deserving of your chessed than my daughter, E______, who does so much chessed of her own. She thanks you also from the bottom of her heart. I pray for a recovery so that I may one day repay you for your kindness. In the meantime, I can only thank you again from the depths of my heart for allowing my daughter, E______ to get married with dignity and a wonderful start on a new life.Thank you; thank you; thank you.Sincerely,Mrs. G______ R______
