Help Strengthen a Bio Family

Normal Request
I'm currently working with a family who is in need of some child items - they are very tight on financials currently as the father is out of work and the mother is pregnant. - Baby Crib - Toddler Bed - Baby Gate - Diapers (newborn + size 4) - Young boy clothes size 18 Husky - one of their sons is growing so quickly they are having a hard time financially keeping up with getting him new clothes to wear that fit. Another issue is that the family's oven door recently broke, so the oven still works but it's a safety concern for their little ones. Mom is having to keep them out of the kitchen which has been difficult. I'm wondering if anyone might be willing to replace the glass on the oven door? Or potentially replace the stove all together? It's a GE electric stove/oven. Thank you so much!!

We have a mom who is working diligently to gain sobriety and stability for herself (and her 16 year old daughter). Reunification is soon to take place and teen will be returning home. When asked, the teen said she was really hoping for a high-quality comforter when coming home but mom can't afford it; so mom reached out to her caseworker for help. Mom said she felt that this comforter symbolizes a new beginning for she and her daughter as well as love and support for them from their community - which may help this mom maintain sobriety/stability in the future. https://www.hayneedle.com/product/comainducercomforterbybyourbed.cfm.

Help Preserve a Kinship Placement

Normal Request
I have a kin-family that is requesting a punching bag for a 13 years old male who is experiencing anger issues due to being placed outside his home and being separated from his sibling. The kin-provider has requested additional supports to ensure his placement with them is successful, but feels that it would be really therapeutic for him to have a punching bag to help him in releasing some of the tension/anger built up. Both kin-provider and youth are looking forward to having this as a new tool for him, if provided. https://www.amazon.com/Accodone-Freestanding-Punching-inches-Suction/dp/B091GVFLF5

Hello! I am currently working with an great aunt who is caring for her great nephews. Aunt has been doing an amazing job of utilizing community resources to help her care for her nephews. However, she is desperately in need of clearing out 3 storage units and condensing them so she has additional income to help pay for bills. Aunt has been unable to do this task as she is disabled and her hands don't function properly. We are looking for volunteers to help us! Aunt's storage units are located off 70th and Washington in Thornton. We need some helping hands to help us clear out items along with some trucks to transport them to thrift stores. We plan to meet at the storage lot at 10am on June 4th. Please let me know if you are available to help as it would be greatly appreciated.

We have a 15 year old male who has been discharged from detention yet doing incredible well since being released into the community. He is attending school full-time, under a credit recovery program, passing all his classes and is working really hard to better himself. He has been placed with a young kinship couple, ages 18 and 20 yrs., who took him in immediately, out of the kindness of their BIG hearts. Therefore, the caseworker is requesting a few small gift card for them, which will then help provide some essentials, and the extra food needed, to make this partnership successful. Thanks :-)

CJ: I can provide a $50 King Soopers gift card. They just need to enroll in our Community Rewards program, which funds this ministry, and be able to connect with us directly for the exchange. If this sounds good to you and them, then their first step will be enrollment. All the instructions are at this link. https://graceofthelord.church/king-soopers-gives/ Once done, we will need some sort of verification. Usually a screen shot can be taken, or something (we are not picky). Afterwards, we will reach out to them to complete registration and schedule the hand off.

Hello! A family of 3 living in a 6 month shelter program just moved in and is wondering if anyone could donate an old TV (small) and fan for their room. They share the living space with other families, and were hoping to be able to have some time independent of others to focus on their little family.

We have a youth (teen) that is struggling with anger management. Her current outlet is fighting which has now gotten her in trouble. But she wants to get better and figure out another way to release her aggression without hurting others. She has asked her caseworker to help in getting her a freestanding punching bag so she can give boxing (at home) a try. She feels it would be a better alternative, release her anger/tension in a positive way and give her a good workout. So we are requesting a standing punching bag for her as an outside donor has already provided the boxing gloves/wraps. https://www.amazon.com/gp/slredirect/picassoRedirect.html/ref=pa_sp_btf_sports-and-fitness_sr_pg1_1?ie=UTF8&adId=A002305936KJ33WHGJA7Q&url=%2FMuscle-Splitter-Freestanding-Punching Kickboxing%2Fdp%2FB08X4X1CTW%2Fref%3Dsr_1_31_sspa%3Fdchild%3D1%26keywords%3DFreestanding%2BPunching%2BBags%2Bfor%2Bteenagers%26qid%3D1619537251%26s%3Dsports-and-fitness%26sr%3D1-31-spons%26psc%3D1&qualifier=1619537251&id=4214996155712139&widgetName=sp_btf

We are working with a mom and dad who are working hard to provide for their family and meet all requirements of their treatment plan. Their children, ages 2, 3 and 5 years, are home with them which is great but parents don't have car seats for any of them, which could pose a risk, if parents have to transport them in an emergency situation. Unfortunately, mom/dad are lower income so can't afford to buy them on their own right now and need a 'hand up' to meet this need for their kids and keep them safe. Can you help?
