Friends Helping Friends

DEAR Friends of Connecticut, Long Island and New York!

I am calling upon all individuals who are reading this request and all our Listeners of  Wicc600 AM , WEBE 101 and LifeTalk with Mariette.

People in Texas need our help, some have lost everything and their only choice is to start from scratch again. It takes MONEY!

Instead of sending costly packages to HOUSTON, we focus on financial donations. Please be generous when you write out your checks and/ or Walmart Gift Cards. Walmart + Kroger are in Houston and surrounding towns.


Checks should be made out to : KES, Inc. /Friends Helping Friends
Please include your email address for TAX RECEIPT

Credit Card Pmts. go to www.kmareducation.org – Pay Here.

Walmart Gift Cards to be dropped off at various location below or mailed to: KES, Inc. P O Box 303, Westport, CT 06881


I have asked the help of some local businesses to open their doors and take your donations in trusted hands:
