Without Water in NW Arkansas…the Need of a Single Mom (NEED MET!)

We are overwhelmed with joy to report that this need HAS BEEN MET!  In just 8 short hours, $1,200 was donated & the plumbers will start repair work TOMORROW!

We will have photos to show progress & let you know once it has been completed.

Thank you Northwest Arkansas!  You made an incredible and eternal difference in the life of this mom & her children.  We are just humbled & honored to be able to participate in this story of renewal.


We don’t do this very often, but from time to time we come across stories of people in our community who need our help.  The people involved in Cobblestone Project have always come to the aid of those with the greatest needed, so today we would like to share a story of great need to ask for your help.

This is from Mark & Tiffany, Siloam Springs Laundry Love Coordinators…

A little over a year ago we met a lady we will call “Mary” at Siloam Springs Laundry Love Project.  That night she was the mother of an adorable little girl, and the soon to be mom of coming twins.

Our little community at Soap Opera Laundry on South Lincoln Street threw an impromptu baby shower for Mary, and over the past year we have come to love and appreciate Mary in a great way.  In a short of amount of time we began our journey of lasting friendship, love, and learning of her life.

As a single-mom, Mary struggles to make her limited income cover the expenses of her growing family to include a young daughter and twins that are now less than a year old.

She lives in a mobile home in Siloam Springs on land that she owns, and just recently she discovered a problem in the plumbing line between her house and the street.  Due to the problem the water became contaminated and had to be turned off.

The cost to repair the issue is almost more than she would make in two months, and she now lives with the burden of not having access to clean water at her house.

We’ve contacted Allied Plumbing come out to take a look and it appears she will need to replace the line from her house to the street (tree roots creating problems).

The estimated cost is $1,200 with a substantial discount from Allied Plumbing (click to see estimate).

As her community we are seeking to do what we can to restore this basic need, in hopes that someone will either donate their plumbing services or we can raise the money to cover the repairs.

If you are able to help meet this need you may

  1. Donate towards cost of repairs via the Cobblestone Project Store:  Water Repairs for Mary (all donations are tax deductible).
  2. Purchase/Donate Needed Materials.
  3. Donate your time & expertise to repair the water line.

If we are able to raise the needed funds, we will provide follow up documentation & pictures of the completed work.

Any questions may be directed to info@CobblestoneProject.org or (479) 553-9005.
