Why In The Image?
Vicky is struggling - she has found herself as a new, single mom of two school-aged children, with little support. She started a second job to make ends meet and provide a stable home for her daughters - Ellie, 8 and Sydney, 10.
When Vicky talked to the school about resources to find winter clothing for her children, they told her about In The Image's Free Store. She could shop for free in a welcoming and safe place - finding the items she needed for the girls - coats, hats, gloves, boots that fit, everything a growing child would need to stay warm.
There was just one problem. How was she going to get to In The Image?
Vicky lives in Kentwood and although In The Image isn't terribly far away - she will need to take the bus - she will need to take time off of work. She can't get to the Free Store without losing out on some of her paycheck to pay bills. And just like that, something that was going to help Vicky now adds more stress to her life.
