Normal Request
I am working with a family to clean up and improve the situation at their home for three children. Right now they are without a refrigerator and a stove (gas) because theirs quit. The family has been cooperative and have put effort into cleaning their home. Acquiring these appliances would greatly improve the children's lives. I am asked for help in getting them a refrigerator and a gas stove. Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated.

High Urgency Request
I am working with a family that has recently moved to a new home. They were not able to take the children's beds from the old home due to the potential for re-infestation and the condition of the items. The four oldest children are currently in need of beds, and as they share rooms, bunk beds would be best. The girls are aged 11, 12, 9 and 5.
