Dear Luis:
I cannot make your SS card come any faster than you can. Go to SS and have them give you a receipt showing your number on it. That way you can have proof of your number even if you do not have your card. Try to find a safe place for your mail.
Does the salvation army help people in your area?? Good Luck....Carol
