BAARC Makes a Difference

Over the years we have had the pleasure of helping many of our industry peers through tough times, and we always love hearing how they are doing and witnessing the positive impact BAARC can make on someone’s life.

Here are a few words of gratitude from past grant recipients.

“I can’t begin to let you know how much your help and that of BAARC allowed me and my family to survive during the last 9 months. Thanks for all of your help, financially and emotionally/mentally. Please accept this gift with our utmost appreciation and gratitude for all you have done. If there is anything my family or myself can do to help you in any way please don’t hesitate to me know.”

“Hello Bobbi . . . Hope all is well with you. I am very sorry for not being in touch as you deserve but as you can imagine I have completely immersed myself in my new job. I owe all of this to you. I cannot thank you enough. You and BAARC were angels to my family. health and happiness to you.”

“One of my sweetest moments of the last many days was opening an envelope Ginny dropped by my house that had grocery and gas cards inside. As the cards slipped into my hand, my heart felt a little pang, ‘somebody cares about me. They don’t know me, but they cared enough to help me out.’ Thank you so much to Ginny for going out of her way to make sure the cards got safely into my hands. Thanks to my case worker, Jan, for her caring outreach. And thanks to everyone at BAARC for bothering to spend your valuable time helping others. The financial assistance is a blessing, but the feeling that people care enough to have my back, even it it’s just a little bit, is very special too.”
