Working Mom of Three Gets Helping Hand from Karen and Charles Phillips Charitable

Working Mom of Three Gets Helping Hand from Karen and Charles Phillips Charitable

Brandy Stadel is a single mom living in Illinois. She works hard at her job, but she’s had a difficult time making ends meet, especially since her hours are cut back during the winter. Ms. Stadel recently gave birth to her third child, and her bills keep growing. She rents a small one-bedroom trailer, but has fallen hundreds of dollars behind on her rent, with little relief in sight.

The grant that Ms. Stadel has received from PCO will help her get back on feet and catch up on her rent and bills. It will put her on a steadier footing as she works to provide a more comfortable life for her daughters.

The PCO Board: Eric Garvin, Young Huh, Karen Phillips, and Charles Phillips. The foundation has provided over 100 grants in the last three years.
