Grace’s Story, Support for a family after a job loss

One day Grace was chatting with a local mum. She learned that her husband had lost his previous job which had been keeping them afloat. In order to make ends meet he had taken a lower paid shift work job in which he was working ridiculous hours, putting lots of strain on the family. Despite his efforts there was still “too much month left at the end of the money”.  Grace asked her if she could make a request to her Common Change group, to alleviate some pressure, whilst her husband found a more suitable job. Her friend was really touched by the offer and the group were able to help provide the equivalent to four of her weekly grocery supplies.
