Dreams of being financially secure ended for this family as the effects of the pandemic hit the Ozarks. Dad had begun his own lawn-care business, purchased the necessary equipment and was building up a list of clients. But one by one, his customers began to lose jobs, have fewer hours at work and develop financial problems. Paying someone to care for their lawn was an expense they could no longer afford. Eventually, Dad did not have enough clients to keep operating his business. For several months, while he searched for a job, the family had no income. Mom writes, “Our bills keep piling up and we don’t have money for the everyday things we need, let alone Christmas. If we don’t get help, my children won’t be able to have much of a Christmas. We would greatly appreciate anything. Thank you.” Dad recently found temporary work that will help with overdue bills. He tries to remain optimistic that next summer he can re-establish the lawn-care business.
