Who We Are Helping

December, 2012

Mr. Dave LeClerq

Rigger in Sausalito, California.

Mr. LeClerq is suffering from a degenerative back condition, forcing him out of work until surgery.

“I want to thank Lori Rudiger and the Rudi’s Mates Fund for getting me a grant of $5000.00.  I have been in the marine industry for over 30 years, but due to the physical nature of the work and a degenerative spinal condition, I can no longer work.  I have spinal surgery scheduled at the San Francisco VA Medical Center with a 3-6 month recovery period.  I am currently receiving state disability payments which will barely cover my rent through the surgery and recovery period.  Because of the grant I hopefully can make it through this period financially and return to work.  I think the Rudi’s Mates Fund is a worthy cause and I want to thank all of the people who made donations.”
