Single mom with 4 children (3 in school) is not currently working due to not having child care and no money for gasoline. She is struggling to make ends meet and is worried that it will impact her children. In order to help her get on her feet, she indicated that she is in need of Huggies diapers size 5 (due to an allergy), gas cards, and size 10/12 clothes for a girl and size 1 tennis shoes. This will help alleviate some of the financial stress that this family is currently facing.

A hard-working family of 6 needs a hand up. They are trying to get out of a basement residence that is unfit for habitation. They have found a place but are in need of the $500 deposit to make it happen.
A single mother of 3 (currently expecting her 3rd child). Mom is currently working part-time to try and make ends meet. Mom has worked really hard to make a better life for her and her children. 2 years ago she was homeless and trying to escape a domestic violence relationship. Due to the distance from school to kids home they can not ride the bus. They have to be walkers. Mom uses her car daily to drop off and pick up the kids. While picking up the kids on Tuesday mom had a flat tire in the school parking lot. At this time mom is unable to afford new tires. She expressed all her tires are bad and need to be replaced. She states she has to air her tires 2-3 times a week. We are asking for support with purchasing the family a new set of tires. It would be great to be able to assist with replacing all tires before the winter hits. This would ensure that mom is able to make it to her doctor appointments and have the kids at school each day.
We did some research and found a company "Zohr" that is a mobile tire company. You purchase your tires from them and they will come to your location to replace the tires and discard the old tires. The company has also agreed to give us a 10% discount on our purchase. The purchase would include price of tires, rotation, installing the new tires and recycle of old tires.
2 tires= $476.99 (with a 10% discount) taxes not included
4 tires = $992.69 (taxes not included).
We would like to say thank you in advance
