The Credit for Caring Act - financial help for caregivers

Screenshot-2021-10-12-at-11-18-19-Text---S-1670---117th-Congress-2021-2022-Credit-for-Caring-Act-of-2021

A bill making its way through both houses of Congress would give some of America’s 48 million family caregivers of adults much-needed financial assistance.  The Credit for Caring Act, introduced in mid-May in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, would provide a federal tax credit of up to $5,000 for working family caregivers.

Visit a senior for Easter

MamaUnderstoodSlider03

Many Christians and non-Christians are anticipating the coming of Easter week to celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I can’t help but to reflect on my growing up and what Easter Sunday meant to our family; new church clothes, attending church, Easter egg hunt, Easter dinner and great fellowship. As I think about that rich family tradition, I am equally saddened as I think about my grandmother’s aging process. Therefore, I decided to demonstrate my reflection on Easter by borrowing excerpts from my book, Ma, Ma, Um Sweatin.

The main mission of the fraternity was to provide community service along with service to the university to benefit people. One annual project carried out by the RKS that was a favorite of mine was to visit a local nursing home over the Christmas Holiday season.
