Necol is the single mother of five children. She is extremely close to all her children and wants great things for their future. Necol found out about Reason to Give through the Lafayette Elementary School. She is hoping for some help with everyday items as well as help to send her two oldest children Willie Jr. and Holly to college.
Necol has endured many struggles throughout her life, and now as a single parent, she continues to fight for her family's survival through economic hardships. She has decided to put her past behind her and pursue an education for herself in order to be a role model for her children. It is obvious to us just from being around her family, that Necol's children love and respect her very much. She has sacrificed a lot for her family to give them a new start. Her strength and positive outlook on life is truly inspirational.
Willie Jr., 17, is hoping to go to college out of state and play basketball. He is excited to explore the world outside of Chicago and wants to pursue a degree in computer technology and business. He also dreams of playing in the NBA one day. Holly, 15, works hard in school and hopes to one day be a nurse or a doctor. She volunteers regularly for Reason to Give and also enjoys mixing her own music. Claudia, 13, wants to go to law school, and the two youngest boys, Luke, 10, and Joshua, 6, have the same dreams as many little boys: to be professional athletes.
Necol highlights the importance of education and giving back to the community to her children. Her family already actively volunteers in the community, and she hopes that once she is back on her feet, she will be able to help those who have been through similar struggles.
Necol is asking for winter wear, shoes, and school supplies for her family. She also needs basic household items such as small appliances and bedding. Necol hopes to get help for her family's education as well. She needs a computer for herself and her children to complete homework assignments and research college scholarships. She is also hoping to set up a college fund to help her children in pursuit of their dreams.
Necol and her five children are grateful for any help they receive from Reason to Give.
