A 13 year old girl (will be 14 on April 2!) finally connecting with a family member willing to provide a home. There is a closed for the child’s clothes, but a dresser would improve her comfort and wliminate a basket for socks, underwear etc..
A chest of drawers would be fine but a longer burrow that could fits along a wall at the foot of her bed would be great! A sturdy dresser is all that is needed. If the finish is well loved, it could be repainted easily by this creative girl.
My hope is this kinship placement becomes the long term permanent place for her!

There is a woman who has just taken in her four nieces and nephews. The children were living in Kansas, but are now living in Missouri. Due to the sudden displacement, the aunt does not currently have any beds for the children and is currently working on getting the home better prepared for the additional children.
There is a 13 year old boy, a 16 year old girl, a 17 year old boy, and a four year old boy.
The family receiving beds would help them with this sudden change and help the aunt with her resources.

A family of 5 is currently in desperate need of financial assistance with an overdue electric bill ($3,700) and an $800 phone bill as soon as possible. They were staying with the wife's mother, but were recently told that only the children could stay. This forced the husband and wife to go back to an unlighted home, and they are currently living by candlelight (have been since Thursday 9/29). Both husband and wife are unemployed. The husband is interviewing this Wednesday, but the wife is currently awaiting medical clearance to start back at Amazon after an osteoarthritis flair up.
