We have a 12 year old female who is placed in a residential facility in Columbia, Missouri. Her family lives in Kansas City. Her sister and her aunt would like to be able to go and see their sister and bring her back on weekends once a month so that she can see her 5 other siblings. Family is really important to our youth and her being in Columbia has made it hard for her family to go see her. Her family does not have the financial ability to make it to and from Columbia often.
The request is for gas cards so that the aunt or sister can go pick their sister up once a month for a pass to see her family. I can keep the gas cards at my office and provide them to the aunt or sister once a month.

I work for a low-income housing apartment complex, and we are in need of a bookshelf. We have been focusing on raising the literacy rate among our residents and were donated numerous boxes of books to help with this endeavor. We have also started English as a Second Language (ESL) classes for those who want to learn more English. Because of these classes and the donated books, we need a bookshelf to store the materials and books that our residents are now learning to read! Receiving this bookshelf would help us continue to serve our residents in an organized manner.
The bookshelf can be dropped off at the apartment complex office.
