There is no real Barley MacTavish. This fund was established by an anonymous donor and is being continued with private financial support, plus donations from area residents during the holiday season. The project has been undertaken to help make Midland a little better place to live. Letters to Barley are not from actual applicants, but do represent typical requests.

Dear Barley,

I am a single woman and have always paid my bills on time and donated to worthy causes. I never thought I would be in this situation. Working at a popular restaurant as a hostess and server, I had customers who tipped well. Then, last year, I had a health scare and missed work for over three months.

I used up my savings to cover my monthly bills. But I am really worried about paying my rent. I have a wonderful landlord, but she needs the money as well. Could you help out this month? My landlord and I would thank you.

Dear Friend,

Please do not feel embarrassed for asking for help. The Barley MacTavish Fund was established to help people like you in similar situations. Thank you for being a person who helped others in the past. I will send a check to your landlord for your month’s rent. Take care and stay well.
