GETTING AHEAD FOR THE WINTER: SPACE HEATER DRIVE


You made FLMCC’s 2015 Space heater drive a success.

Thanks to your support and generosity we were able to ship enough space heaters for 14 families on the Pine Ridge and Standing Rock reservations in South Dakota.

These space heaters will help keep families warm as the cold sets in and be a complement to the more usual form of heating with propane. We hope the families will be able to enjoy a less stressful winter with this supplementary form of heating.

We want to extend our particular thanks to: Debbie and Ray Hirsch, Sharon Smith, Deborah Wright, Tara Brousseau, Anne Gale, Rene Dubois III, Anniemay Parish, and also to Kim Lawrence and her kind customers at Smoke Signal Gems, for their unfailing support and encouragement, as well as our gratitude to our anonymous donors and all our social media “sharers” whose support is an integral part of making this kind of project happen.

Many respectful thanks also to Oglala Lakota elder Jean Belt, her daughter Davidica Littlespottedhorse and all the family for their much-appreciated hard work and assistance in this project.

We are also beginning to ship good warm coats and other clothes, scarves, hats, and we are getting ready to assist with propane when needed. If you would like to help, please consider contributing to our shipping and propane fund. You can do so today by simply clicking on the “Donate” button at the top of the page. Your donations are tax-deductible in the United States. If you have gently-used clothes or other household things you no longer need, see our “Get involved” page for addresses of reliable contact people who will help get these goods to those who need them, or feel free to contact us.

Thank you for your support!

FOR FLMCC, YOUR CONTINUING ASSISTANCE MEANS WE CAN HELP MORE CHILDREN AND ELDERS


June has arrived and with it the long days of summer and school vacation. It’s a good moment to take stock of Freddy and Little Massi Calling Corp’s activities over the past few months and look forward to our activities for the coming months as well.

Since January 1st, 2015, FLMCC has directly assisted 19 elders and families with the payment of heating and electricity bills, emergency rental assistance, and travel expenses for medical reasons. We have also purchased a small stock of school supplies towards our 2015 School Drive. To that was added the shipment / distribution of over 600 lbs of clothing and foodstuffs to families in need.

All of this activity was made possible exclusively through the generosity of our supporters, to whom we are infinitely grateful.

As we move into summer, we are still receiving requests for assistance with electrical bills and rent, and we still have hundreds of pounds of donated clothing and supplies to ship. However, we are currently forced to put requestors on a waiting list due to lack of funds, and we sincerely regret this situation. Loss of power places related extra burdens on families in financial difficulty. Food is spoiled due to refrigerators that no longer run; laundry cannot be done at home; there is no warm water for bathing infants and young children; and electric stoves and other home appliances cannot be used. Moreover, during the hottest days of summer, loss of power means loss of air conditioning and fans, and thus a potential danger for fragile persons. And failure to pay the rent means eviction, pure and simple.

All of these issues all place more financial strain and anxiety on families with small children or grandchildren who are surviving on a frayed shoestring budget and who may have to try to get help from other relatives with equally complicated budgets.

Emergency financial needs are not limited to the cold of winter. Cuts in administrative funding, loss of employment, illnesses, and natural disasters – these emergencies know no season.

There are also our ongoing projects: the School Drive to provide as many children of less fortunate families as possible with the necessary pens, paper, notebooks, book bags etc., so they can start the 2015-16 school year properly equipped; our Blanket Drive to help provide warm blankets to the homeless; and of course shipping clothing and other basic needs.

For more information about our activities, please don’t hesitate to visit the different pages in our blog. We have received several very kind testimonials for our work over the past few months.

FLMCC’s purpose is to provide urgent assistance to families with small children and to elders in need, as often as possible and as far as our means will allow. We are counting on your continuing kindness to help us to make this consistently possible, 365 days a year. We ask that you please continue to share our information to others, and we thank you for any contributions you can make to our efforts. Every donation is important and very much appreciated.

UPDATE ON FUNDRAISER AT Michael’s Diner Corp


UPDATE ON FUND RAISER at Michael’s Diner Corp together with Freddy & Little Massi Calling Corp that took place on March 15th 2015 at Michael’s:
The fund raiser was a success and we would like to thank all who were instrumental in making this day a very memorable one.
Everyone who attended had a really awesome time and the purpose of our event was fulfilled. We have even put in gear to start a scholarship program in Miami and have already began assisting elders who are in need and getting school supplies to those children who are in immediate need.
Our efforts will continue and we hope that you will continue to support us and grow with us with time.
On behalf of the Staff of Michael’s Diner , Freddy and Little Massi Calling corp and THE PEOPLE, we THANK YOU ALL. God Bless!

MICHAEL’S DINER and FLMCC SCHOOL DRIVE


TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
On behalf of MICHAEL’S DINER (11045 NW 7th Ave, Miami Florida ), Freddy and Little Massi Calling Corp, myself and The People, we would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for your generosity by being a major part of our Michael’s Diner 2014 Toy Drive, making it a great success and putting additional smiles and hope into the hearts and lives of many less fortunate children within the Miami Dade community.
It is the intention and main focus of Michael’s Diner and FLMCC together with the assistance of kind people such as yourself, to continue to bring as much relief to the impoverished families, especially children and our elders, as possible, remembering that our children are our future and our elders have paved the road on which we now walk on.
Your continuous support will allow us to bring year round assistance, to the many unfortunate school children, by providing them with the basic stationery, shoes, school bags etc, that will help them get through their school years, and assist in affording them fair chance at their much deserved education to take them into a more hopeful future.
Again my deepest appreciation for your kindness and looking forward to doing much more in the years to come, with your continuous support.
