Can you give me some examples of how the money is used?
Sure. Jayne was on short-term disability for breast cancer when her 10 year old vehicle died. She used her remaining savings to purchase a new vehicle. Her disability check did not cover all her financial needs. She contacted The Pink Fund for help in making four rent payments until she could return to work.
Charlene had used up her Federal Medical Leave Act and needed another three months to complete her treatment. While her short term disability would cover housing and transportation, it did not cover the maintenance of her health and dental insurance premiums. The Pink Fund covered those two bills until she returned to work.
