    So, poverty and one of the highest unemployment rates in the country means nothing? Instead of blaming the impoverished and desperate, so many youth resorting to crime just to eat while unemployment insurance was shutdown after only 26 weeks by a millionaires' Congress, food stamps cut to $30 mo for disabled seniors, no housing options, no jobs programs etc. I don't feel bad for anyone who does not get what is happening to so many RP families, teachers, moms & dads doing their best to survive. And what this mayor has done to the police as well? God'll get you for that

Hi all. Not sure if you were aware but Jan from Jan's Antiques moved her business to Evanston from the Fulton District a few months back. Her landlord asked her to leave the space she leased for over 10 years. Not many people know this but she has suffered through huge inventory loses, a stressful move, major health problems and a car accident that totaled her car. Thankfully she and the other driver were not injured. She is without a car and has a loner until the end of the month but does not have a plan after she returns the car. I know this is a stretch and wanted to reach out to WL community to see if anyone has or knows someone who might be willing to donate a car. I would take care of picking it up and handling all the ownership paperwork. Even if you don't have a car ask your friends and family. It would be awesome if we could find a way to help her out!

I would like to keep this request from Jan if I can so don't mention anything to her if you know her or happen to bump into her.

Appreciate your time and consideration

  • Christian: Thank you for taking the time to help Jan. You should consider calling someone in development at Old St. Pat's Church. There may be parishioners willing to help.

    I will spread the word. Thank you

  • That would be great. if anything does come to light please email me. cjsiegel514@gmail.com. Thank you for trying to help!

  • Just heard back from Old St. Pat's. They are going to check around to see if they have some leads. No promises, but they have a good network.
