I posted here last Saturday that a very kind businessman in Wichita, Kansas had called me about contributing to our Christmas Children. I received his company check yesterday in the amount of $200.00 which was just what he had promised to give. His money would have been all that we needed to complete our gifts to the local children.
Once I received his check, I discovered that no one in our county or in Scott County is willing to cash it. Not because it is a bad check but because Stan and I do not have a bank account in either of these two counties. I called various stores in Wichita and Scott County. Again, no one could help us.
My sister, Lori, suggested that I try some check cashing businesses in Garden City. One lady who works at one of them told me that she is going to try to obtain permission from her supervisor to cash it for us. Normally, they allow a person to write a personal check to the check casher. The business then cashes it when the customer's paycheck is given to the employee. Of course, there are fees for doing this. This particular case is different. So far, I have heard nothing back from the company to let me know if they will be able to help with this or not.
So, we have a great man who wants to help these children. I have his check. No one will cash it. Isn't that just GRAND???
