A plastic dresser or storage cart for each child would be ideal. The children include a girl (age 10) and three boys (ages, 7, 4, & 4). Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.

Single mom is a relative placement for her young niece, who is in foster care. The aunt has a car repair that needs to be done and desperately needs assistance. If there is anyone who can do the repair or help to pay for the repair, it would be greatly appreciated, as the aunt does not have the money. This car is the families only personal method of transportation. This would help the aunt to get to work, get the children to and from school, to therapy appointments and other necessary appointments. The aunt has gotten an estimate from an auto repair shop. The diagnosis is "leaking antifreeze from the oil cooler." The estimate repair cost is $718.40. Thank you for your consideration to helping this family.

Local family of 5 needing assistance with a leaky windshield. Mom shared that when it rains, rain just pours in to her front windshield of her truck. She showed me where you can push on the windshield and it moves, nearly popping out. The family does not have a garage to park in and parents are very concerned about upcoming freezing temps causing even more damage and safety concerns. Mom called and got a quote from Cameron Glass.

We are hoping to find a generous donor for a deserving family whose 12-year-old daughter who struggles with significant mental health disorders and is supported by our programs. There are five children in this single-family home including a set of twin one year old babies. The family is on a very tight budget and is in desperate need for two highchairs to assist the youngest to engage and sit at the table with the family during meals. Mom is working at Pizza Hut but making a purchase like this is difficult on her budget. Mom is hoping to find a donor willing to purchase two new highchairs (Cosco Simple Fold High Chair, Elephant puzzle) for their family. We have noted details of the type of highchair the young mother needs for the twins.
Your ongoing support of the families we serve is greatly appreciated!
The child will be starting a club volleyball team in November. The foster home mentioned needing some help with the fees. I wanted to reach out to see if anyone would be willing to donate to help this foster child participate in a sport she is very passionate about. She stated that volleyball makes her feel normal and being able to be apart of a team. She recently did not make her school volleyball team and her foster home wants to give her the opportunity to still play this sport and be apart of a team.
Please let me know if anyone has additional questions- I would be very happy to answer them!
this child will be going on a band trip to Florida in March of 2024. This will be a great opportunity for her to explore the world and experience new things with her classmates. This money will be used for transportation, lodging, and tickets to the parks as she will go to at Disney World. Placement will be paying for meals and spending money for her.
