Alan is now disabled and wears a prosthetic leg. His monthly disability check is not enough to pay all his bills, and he recently contacted a Good Cheer Fund agency for assistance with his rent, because he had received an eviction notice.

Your generous donation can help Alan remain in his apartment and get his life back on track.
