A grandmother took in her four grade school age grandchildren. This is a huge strain on her. She is receiving no help from the biological mother or fathers. She is in great need of assistance with the following to preserve the kinship placemen.:
$200 Grocery food card,
Cleaning supplies: mop, bucket, plastic putty knife, oven cleaner, floor cleaner, sponges, cleaning rags, bleach, liquid dish soap, vacuum cleaner,
Hygiene (miscellaneous supplies): 4 female deodorants, 1 male deodorant, 5 toothbrushes, 2 tubes of toothpaste, floss picks, mouth wash, and pretty nail polish for fun
Beds/Bedding: 2 bunk beds, 4 mattresses, 4 pillows, 4 sheet sheet/pillow case sets, 3 girl blankets and 1 boy blanket.
She is a frugal woman and I do not believe she will not abuse any gift she receives.
The gifts will allow the home to be cleaned up which will reduce odor and flies. The children will improve their oral and personal hygiene.

The family had to flee their situation in another city due to very unfortunate circumstances. Mom currently has advanced colon cancer and is unable to work or get out of the house much recently. Dad has a job, but they have fallen on hard times with the unexpected, urgent move. Dad does have to take off work frequently to attend mom's doctor's appointments.

Single mom is a relative placement for her young niece, who is in foster care. The aunt has a car repair that needs to be done and desperately needs assistance. If there is anyone who can do the repair or help to pay for the repair, it would be greatly appreciated, as the aunt does not have the money. This car is the families only personal method of transportation. This would help the aunt to get to work, get the children to and from school, to therapy appointments and other necessary appointments. The aunt has gotten an estimate from an auto repair shop. The diagnosis is "leaking antifreeze from the oil cooler." The estimate repair cost is $718.40. Thank you for your consideration to helping this family.
