. … . Helping Alina

Regular readers (thank you) may remember an April story about Alina Ionescu, the Romanian woman who received some sight-saving surgery thanks to the volunteers of the local Salvation Army.We received an e-mail from Alina this week, which we’re sharing below:I just had my second laser treatment on my face, and I am waiting to get better now. It’s all bruised and it hurts a lot, but I am sooo happy!I will be done with my au pair contract on June 17(the family is moving to Boston), and now I am waiting for my next visa to come, so I can be able to get a job. In the meantime, I need some help with something, and I am thinking to let you know. You’ve been so helpful so many times, I am sure if you have a way you will help again. Here is an announcement that we made at church:

Do you have a used car to sell or donate?The Salvation Army and the Eagle Valley Family Assistance Fund are helping church member Alina Ionescu obtain a serviceable used car in order to drive to numerous medical appointments, as well as to work. If you have a used car in decent running condition to sell or donate (if donated to the Salvation Army, it’s tax-deductible), or you know of anyone who does, please contact Alina at (360) 535-2106 or Tsu Wolin-Brown at the Salvation Army (970) 926-3704….
