Life Guard-hosted Tastefully Simple benefit helps NJ single mother

Heart problems had run in Carol Tanchak’s family, but when this single mother from Monmouth County, NJ lost her job due to her own heart condition, things began to look bleak.  How would she provide for her family? 

When Life Guard Ecumenical Foundation (LGEF) learned of her story, we put the wheels in motion to help. 

In June of 2009, LGEF hosted a “Tastefully Simple” gathering in which friends and neighbors (and Carol herself!) joined in sampling Tastefully Simple products.  Each guest contributed a grocery store or restaurant gift card to Carol’s family—a whopping $875 was raised in all!--and a basket overflowing with Tastefully Simple products was donated to the Tanchak family as well. 

In Carol’s own words, “Your help, thoughtfulness, and prayers are greatly appreciated.  The world is extremely fortunate to have people like you.”  Today, Carol is thriving after receiving a heart transplant and beginning a new career.  She has even set her sights on running a half marathon with her daughter!
