She is not the only one suffering. One of the Lodges in my area provides for two families during Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. A call for compassion shouldn't be just asked from the Masons, but from everyone...we're not the only ones with something to give.
Now you might ask - why not give her the laptop I am on? Because it is so old and slow, and also requires an external keyboard. On top of that, I will need it to find a better job.

If you want to help this family submit something to the local news detailing their predicament. Contact the local KoC and Masons too, we do try to help but we try to help within our own communities. We are a large Fraternity but our reach is through the local Lodges as it should be.

please name five masons who are on any board of directors and have the CLOUT your refer to.
See, folks who don't know usually spout off things such as you just did, never knowing anything at all for real about the subject. they heard.....or their friends girlfriend told them....... It's just plain sad that folks are so willing to regurgitate stupidity without actually trying to find out for themselves.
Masons in general are normal folks. Most live modestly as they are not Royalty or Elite. They are garbageman, auto mechanics, factory workers, electricians, plumbers. Most do give what they can to charity and as a mason you learn how your few dollars can pool with everyone else's few dollars and make a big difference somewhere.
So in answer to your question, go to a masonic lodge and find our for your damn self.
