Story

Good afternoon!

We alert you today of a father that was beaten and robbed of his entire paycheck on Friday evening.

He is an electrician and working a job in a town away from home. The company mails checks to the job site so that the men to do not have to return to the home office to get them at the end of the week. This young man was staying in the job site town on Friday night in order to work overtime on Saturday morning. His Credit Union does not have a branch in the town he is working in so he cashed his entire check.

Later that evening he was getting into his truck and was robbed. Three men attacked him, beat him severely, and robbed him of his entire paycheck. He suffered a broken jaw and a depressed skull fracture. He wants to return to work, but the company will not allow him to do so until he goes for his follow up doctor's visiting on Thursday.

To further complicate matters, he does not have any health insurance. He is eligable to get insurance after he has been on the job 1 year. He has been there 10 months. Although this is going to be an issue, it is not urgent.

So we have a hard working father that is injured and without his last paycheck or the ability to work this week.

We would like to help our local church partner provide relief to this man.

Need

Paycheck Replacement = $700

Help with this week's missed paycheck = $200

Total Need = $900

How To Help

1.) Take a second and pray for this Need Alert and every Deeder that is receiving it.

2.) Make donation below.

*As always 100% of your donation is tax deductible and 100% of your money, less the PayPal fees, will be applied to this specific need. You should also know that the relief will be delivered by the local church partner, not One Need.

All Need Alerts are prayed over and fully reviewed before you receive them. When you see a Need Alert from One Need we want you to have confidence that we are providing relief to a person with a real need. Furthermore, you should know that every need originates with a local church partner. Less than 5% of the Needs we work with become Need Alerts. You can feel confident that when you receive a Need Alert, like this one, that we have dug in and worked with the local church partner and the person in need. We know these people, their backgrounds, and have others that confirm these needs.
If you have any questions please email Rodney McClure at rodney@oneneed.org

In Christ,

Rodney & The One Need Team
