There was no warning that life was about to blindside them, and when it did, they found themselves without a support system.
"First, I lost my job," LaShawnda explained. "I thought we'd be OK while I looked for a new one, but…

Like most people who are just living their lives from day to day, James had had good jobs where he worked to take care of his family and live comfortably. When his…

Personal Road MapSo far what I have done to help out with Souper Bowl of Caring is get my mom to set up a jar in her office to raise money for a charity. I talked to my mom and convinced her to set one up so she can help out the organization with raising money for the hungry. The only real challenge I had with this was finding and decorating a jar for her to put in her office!
