Washing Machine for the Cohens
Adam has been the building manager for one of his town’s elementary schools for over 20 years. His wife, Ziva, held a factory job for many years, then worked as a day care aide. None of these positions, although full time, offered a livable salary, so they have had to go into debt to pay their mortgage and the monthly costs that come with raising their three daughters. They are as careful as they can about paying off the loans, but doing so has pushed them into financial crisis.
Their home is neat and clean, and the atmosphere is pleasant, but they lack some basic furniture. Recently the family’s washing machine broke. Friends and family have been helping them with the laundry, but asking for help all the time is stressful. It would make a real difference to their lives if they had a new machine, but their budget cannot cover it.
