Shannon Gordon, a Lex-Care board member, is requesting $500 to help a single father with car repairs. The client's wife died three years ago, leaving him to care for his three daughters, ages 4, 6 and 9. He quit his job as a truck driver to take care of his girls. His 6-year-old has an autoimmune disease and is often sick. He now works as a housekeeper in a hotel and a cook in a local restaurant. His car broke down, leaving him unable to get to work or to take his daughter to doctor appointments.
