Son Needs Pittsburgh Housing

David and Donna Todd , members of Chardon Baptist, Chardon, Ohio, are looking for a Christian family in the Pittsburgh area to host their seventeen-year-son, Jeremy, as he plays for the Pittsburgh Jr. Penguins Jr. B hockey team from the end of August until March. Jeremy has worked two jobs to earn money to pay the host family. He will need a non-smoking home due to allergies and asthma.   The host families for hockey players provide a room for sleeping, meals, help with laundry, and supervision. Jeremy has his own computer and car. Donna, Jeremy’s mom writes, “We would appreciate any help you can provide in finding a host family for our son as he is very important to us” (Hebrews 13:2).  You may contact the Todds at, 440.285.8381.
