Jane was concerned. Her elderly father was sick and needed a hospital bed in order to remain in his home.
Yet hospital beds are expensive. She confided in a colleague that she didn’t know where to turn or how to afford such an expensive piece of equipment.
Fortunately for Jane her colleague, Mindy, had subscribed to the 2-1-1 Cortland Listserv. Mindy shared that she had just received an email from the listserv - a local family was looking to donate a hospital bed. As luck would have it, this family lived just down the road from Jane’s father. When Jane asked how much the family wanted for the bed, they replied “Nothing. Just pay it forward.”
