Hi my name is Kathy Joseph. I am the supervisor of the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church missionary ministry. I want to serve my community this fall by giving school supplies to children in my community. My job is to put together an out-reach program for this community. This community has been hit hard by "Sandy" and we are still trying to recover, by Sandy. I personally would help fund this mission, but I myself has find myself in a hardship. I had to leave my job (Columbia University Medical Center) due to having a severe case of bilateral carpel tunnel. At Columbia, I was a nurse who saw about 80 - 100 patients a day giving injection to patient during the fall months. As I am typing this letter to you I am experiencing tinkling and numbness in my fingers. I tried having surgery, but was deny due to an abnormal electrocardiogram. I am receiving an income from my job through their insurance company (Med-Life). I was given a settlement of $20,000.00 from the compensation broad. I gave Met-Life this information prior to receiving the funds, but they waited until two months after I received the check to tell me that I must give them 19,000.00. Most of the money was gone at this time due to bills and a purchase of a 2008 car. I asked my bank for a loan for $15,000.00 and paid the $4000.00 from my checking account. To date I am in debt. So I am asking that you would help me to accomplish this mission for my community. Thanks in advance. Kathy
