(Phone) Call to Action! From OccupyChi to MN with love & solidarity

"10 days until eviction, I need calls to Woodlands National Bank. Toll free 1-888-532-4142, talk to or leave messages for Cindy Koonce/senior mortgage officer, and also for Ken Villebro/President. Ask them to negotiate a fair and reasonable plan for me to keep my home. Then ask 3 or more of your friends to call.
Thanks!”

#occupyEverywhere (Phone) Call to Action:

Dena Killacky, her husband Patrick and their four children (ages 9-to-18) will be evicted from the home that Dena’s father built in 1978.

Homer Glen, IL 60491 between 131st & 143rd Street (north-to south), South Bell Road & Parker Road (east-to-west).

Call DG Enterprises and tell them they are complicit in the bank’s deceit and that they should renew their original offer to rent the home to the family until they can arrange a way to buy it back.
