Brooklyn Park Community Rallies Around Robbinsdale Family In Need
As the novel coronavirus spreads, so does generosity.
It started with a Brooklyn Park woman putting out a call to help a Robbinsdale family of four. Jill Love posted a message on Facebook asking for others to assist in the effort.
Immediately, people offered to help. While some people offered social agencies where the family could get help, others dropped off groceries at Love’s house to give to the family. Meat, vegetables, pasta, soup and pull-ups for the toddler, packed Love’s car trunk. One family donated a $50 Target Gift Card.
The Robbinsdale family cried when they saw the gifts, mostly from strangers. They want to remain anonymous but said they are very grateful for the generosity of others.
Love says it made her feel good to do something for others. She was the beneficiary of goodwill last week.
“I felt the need to help this family because so many friends and strangers reached out to help my kids and me last week when we needed toilet paper because of my immune compromised daughter. Helping them today made my heart happy,” said Love.
Love’s daughter suffers from inflammatory bowel disease, which makes her use the bathroom often. The family had a limited amount of toilet paper and Love worried they would run out. The social media community came together, bringing enough toilet paper to last for a few months.
The Brooklyn Park resident says it feels good to pay it forward.
