#FamilyFriday: Meet the Harts!

This week for #FamilyFriday, meet the Harts! The Hart family from Canton, GA, was referred to CORE by The Giving Kitchen last month. We were so happy to be introduced to this sweet family: mom Ashley, daughters Lorelei (16) and Kylie (14), and Ashley’s aunt Sherri, who helped CORE throughout the grant. Ashley is recovering from being hit by an SUV in mid-May, an accident that left her with  a brain injury, fractured pelvis and shattered leg. The doctors had to remove part of her skull due to the swelling in her brain, and rebuild her leg from the knee down. After one month at Kennestone Hospital, Ashley is now home, but needs 27/4 care as she suffers seizures as result of the brain injury. CORE helped the family with a few months of utilities, car payments, and rent. We also purchased clothing and a new computer for Lorelei, and gift cards for clothing, new cheerleading shoes, and a replacement phone for Kylie! Executive Director Lauren was able to visit the family while she was in Atlanta, and take Lorelei shopping for new clothes and have lunch with Lorelei, Ashley, and Sherri. Thank you to Hot Wheels Skate Center in Woodstock, GA, for donating 5 nights of teen night skating to Lorelei!
