LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - We recently told you the story of a woman who’s been without a roof over her head after it was torn off by a major storm three weeks ago, and we now have an update on her situation.

”It’s very sad to be alone, to be old and have only negative answers.”

That’s what Mary Fasci had to tell us last time.

”I said, ‘oh my god, I prayed, and you sent me an angel.’ He sent me an angel from god.”

Perhaps “Angels of Hope” were looking after her.

”I’m so glad that somebody could have the charity of me by my age to come to help me. When they saw the report, they were there to help me.”

Webb County Constable Rudy Rodriguez is donating monetary funds to help repair Fasci’s roof using donations from the Angel of Hope charity.

He and other community members developed a winter storm relief fund to help those affected by the winter storm in February.

Their contributions continue making a difference months later.

”This is not with county money,” said Mario Reyes. “This is not with state money. This is with money the Constable Rodriguez himself has raised asking donations to help people like this that are affected.”

Fasci says the storm was like a tornado, picking up her entire roof.

She’s been living in the house as is for close to a month now.

After pleading with various agencies for assistance, she still came up empty handed.

That is until Constable Rodriguez stepped in.

”The aluminum is on the floor. Her entire roof is gone, so she needs help. That’s what moved the constable. Just like her, there are several other individuals that are affected, and he’s trying to help a lot of people.”

The Angels also delivered food to Fasci’s doorstep.

”Oh my lord, you answered my prayers.”

Since the winter storm relief fund was created, Angels of Hope has raised $54,400 and has distributed most of that.
