Betty was nominated by her daughter Brenda to receive a new washing machine. Brenda wrote that her mother's washer has been broken for the last three years so she's been using an old crank rinsing-and-scrub board. It can be difficult for Betty to clean her clothes that way due to old shoulder and back injuries that still cause her pain.

Betty's husband passed in September and Brenda said her mother immediately took to comforting everyone else, never taking the time to grieve herself. Brenda wanted to help lighten the burden of Betty's day-to-day life.
