It Takes A Village Ride for the Melos!
A single mother at risk of losing the North Reading home she shares with her twin autistic girls is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from her community. Paula Melo’s husband, Fernando, died in 2011, just eight weeks after being diagnosed with cancer, and shortly before their twin girls, Sophia and Ava, turned five years old. Since then, Melo has been paying the bills on her paycheck alone.
Over time, Melo got behind on her mortgage payments, and her home – the house her great-grandparents once owned – has since entered the foreclosure process. While Melo has been able to postpone an auction of her home, she is still behind and at risk of losing it. Let’s show Paula that the IC Community has got her back and ride to help raise money so that she is not forced to leave her home.
Please bring a suggested $15 cash donation with you to the event. We hope to see you there!
