The New York Times shared how Met Council and The Times readers helped the Maley family:

Maria Maley is a single mother, raising two daughters: Nicole, 17, and Danielle, 11. Danielle has severe autism and can do very little for herself. Ms. Maley was unable to afford a home computer, and Nicole traveled every day to the library or imposed upon her friends in order to complete school assignments. She spent hours away from home almost every evening — until an anonymous donor read her story as part of The New York Times Neediest Cases and bought Nicole a computer.

“It was life changing for her,” Ms. Maley said. “She’s so happy. It’s been so much stress off her.”-John Otis, The New York Times

Ms. Maley’s was one of Met Council’s four stories in the Neediest Cases campaign, which raises critical funds for New York in need. Read the full article here.
