Debi Love sits on the stairs in her home in Bowling Green. Debi and her husband, David, run Cori’s Taxi 24 hours a day and seven days a week. They started Cori’s Taxi two years ago this November. “The summer is pretty tough for us because a lot of our customer base goes away for the summer when the college kids leave and the food pantry is a huge help when you have to pick between pay the electric or get food.” As a single mom, before Debi married David, there were times she felt she wouldn’t have made it without the help from the food pantry. “There are people who say that other people are just lazy or just using the system and why should we help them and nobody helped me, but not everybody has the same resources.” Debi struggled through homelessness, but managed to pull herself and her family out of homelessness through the help she received from friends and the community. Debi and David are always looking to give back to the community that helps them. Over the winter they loaned one of their taxis to a single mom whose car died and was unable to get a replacement right away. “It’s okay to need help sometimes. At one time or another pretty much everybody does need help. It’s no shame to need a hand and later when you are in a better situation, then you’ll be able to understand and to help someone else." 5/27/2014
