Gratitude for MAPS Charities

MAPS Charities helps with storage

Storage Space

I want to thank all the good people at MAPS Charities for granting my request for assistance with my storage fees. It has been a very difficult year for me. I have had to store all my worldly goods. The assistance that I have received allows me some very needed ‘breathing space’. We are all fortunate that organizations like yours exist in this world. The work that you do is essential in reminding us all that goodness and help is needed and available to those of us who are struggling to make their way in the world, this late in their lives.

My Very Best to You All,

MAPS Charities help senior with wheelchair ramp

Wheelchair Ramp

I was told Friday that your organization will be sending a handicap ramp here for my mother. Our situation here turned rather suddenly for the worse there has been much to do and learn, a bit overwhelming. So the news of the ramp and your generosity couldn’t have come at a better time. Thank You. We are very grateful. Peace. Love. Joy.

Companion Plush Dog

All Companion Pet

I just want to send you a follow up e-mail and let you know Miss T received her Joy for All Companion Pet, his name is Duke. When I spoke with her, she lit up talking about him, telling me how gorgeous he is, and he is her best friend. They enjoy cuddling, watching baseball, and when she walks by him to answer the phone he barks at her. She told me this was the most amazing gift she could’ve received.

Thank you so much for getting this for her. It’s truly brought so much joy to her life.
