United Way, where are you?

They'll say, "That's what insurance is for"

Here's what I ended up doing about this.
I decided not to risk an e-mail getting lost so I called United Way in NY. Remember the head of NY United Way, Ralph Dickerson, appeared on o'Reilly, so I called Ralph's office. Very nice lady helped me out and then put me in touch with the VP Agency Services Area, Elwonda Young.
I gave Elwonda all the info and at her request e-mailed her the article. She said they can't just give the $ for a new wheelchair and van to John Abruzzo, the man in the article, but they can find an agency to handle it and give the money to that agency. Fine. So, she's going to track down John Abruzzo and get him the help he needs. I'm smiling now.
