I have a family that recently relocated due to concerns of abuse from a family member. They have had to start over with furniture and they are in need of two queen size beds for two teenagers. A comfortable mattress to sleep on would greatly be appreciated, thank you.

This family has one young child and a week old baby. They are struggling to pay for milk and formula for the baby because of the high sales prices associated with these items. Gift cards would be greatly appreciate so the family can buy the needed formula for the baby. Any Christmas gifts for the kids would also be welcomed. The baby is a week old and the other child is a six year old boy. Toys or gift cards would be fantastic. Rental assistance is also needed as the mother is out on unpaid maternity leave while supporting two-children. Rent is $1,352, so anything would be appreciated. Thank you for considering supporting this family.

A single mother is working to support her family of two daughters and is in need of support getting them a new bed, mattresses, and a microwave for their home. The bed her daughters are currently using is missing some parts. Having a new bunk bed or two twin beds would support this mom as she delegates finances to the many responsibilities she carries. The new beds will also support her girls as they continue to grow offering them restful nights. She has selected a bunk bed that she prefers. The link for that will be below. The family could also benefit from a microwave for their kitchen. Having the microwave adds another form of cooking for the family as they stay busy with work for the mother and school for her daughters. We prefer new items. If you have gently used bed frames, mattresses, or microwave, please be prepared to send photos for the mother's approval. Any support is greatly appreciated. Thank you!! Bunk Bed Frame: Twin Mattress x 2: Microwave:

A couple is expecting their first child in January and are in need of support getting a car seat. The mother will need to stop working in a couple weeks and is not given any maternal leave. Having the car seat is a requirement for the parents to bring their newborn home from the hospital. Having this support would help them out financially to delegate their finances to other daily expenses they have. We ask for new items. If the car seat is gently used, please be prepared to send photos for the couple's approval. Here is a link to a car seat similar to the what the family is thinking. Thank you for your support!!

Great-Grandma & Grandpa are caring for 7 year old and 2 year old. Great-Grandpa is having significant health challenges that make it difficult for Great-Grandma and the 7 year old to sleep in the same room. Great-Grandma is requesting a full size mattress with frame and bedding for the 7 year old that would also allow her to sleep with the 7 and 2 year old all in one room. The two year old has intense needs and requires Grandma to remain close. Grandma reports that the 7 year old's favorite color is teal/blue when considering bedding. Thank you! (A metal frame that eliminates the need for a box spring will suffice)

Normal Request
This request is two-fold: First request is in regard to a 15-year-old male who is currently in foster placement. He is struggling with pro-social activities and the team/foster parents are working to provide him with incentives to focus on his wellbeing. Some of his choices have risked his placement so the goal is to provide him with a reward to get him back on track. The request is for a $25 Chick Fil A gift card for him. Once he shows progress in the foster home, he will be provided with this. He is placed with his 2 year old brother and if he leaves this placement, they will be separated. It is something that everyone on the team wants to avoid at all costs. Second request is for the mother of these children. Mom is currently in two types of treatment and has requested assistance with gas to help her with getting around. Mom is struggling with some mental health concerns and has come across some barriers to getting to treatment consistently. If the cost of gas can be eliminated, it would be one less challenge for her and hopefully give her one more step in having the children return to her care.

Melissa took in her nephew to let him know she really cares and loves him she is young her self and under 25. Melissa took him in to avoid foster care, and she believes any child deserves a loving and peaceful environment. Melissa is also a full-time student and could use any help available to help provide with what he is needing at this time because she is in school and doesn't get many hours. The baby came with nothing she is in need of 3T clothing, car seat (to transport a almost 3y/o baby boy) and a toddler bed with beddings due to us seeing this as a long term placement.

A grandmother is raising her 2 year old grandson after he was quite literally left on her doorstep by her daughter who is struggling with addiction. This grandmother is working constantly as her husband is not supportive and she is needing some support from the community. This grandmother is the sweetest and most loving woman but has gone through a lot. She is currently needing gas cards or King Soopers card. The only daycare she could afford is 2 hours of driving roundtrip so she is spending a lot of time and money on getting him there so she can work. Any and all support this holiday season would be amazing. Thank you.
