I have a high school student who is currently living in a hotel with his mother. He informed me they are struggling with food. Student informed me his mom is trying as hard as she can. She is currently working 12 hour night shifts to try to help them get back on their feet. I am hoping to get them a $100+ Walmart gift card. This would help elevate some of the stress student and mother are feeling for the need of food. This will also allow them to get any personal hygiene or clothing products they may need.

Family of 7 is lacking transportation to and from medical appointments, work, and a grocery store. They live out in the country so a bus pass will not be sufficient. They just bought a car and do not have enough to pay sales tax to get it registered. We are estimating sales tax and registration to be $150. The family is also struggling with mice in their home.
We are seeking a card with $150 for sales tax and registration as well as a few mice traps.

Single mom with 4 children (3 in school) is not currently working due to not having child care and no money for gasoline. She is struggling to make ends meet and is worried that it will impact her children. In order to help her get on her feet, she indicated that she is in need of Huggies diapers size 5 (due to an allergy), gas cards, and size 10/12 clothes for a girl and size 1 tennis shoes. This will help alleviate some of the financial stress that this family is currently facing.

The child wears Depends diapers size Youth medium/Junior Size. The parents' insurance does cover some of the cost but it will take quite a bit of time to be reimbursed. Thus, putting a financial strain on the family. This request is to assist the family as they wait for insurance to start covering the cost. The child recently started needing this type of diaper due to size and was previously wearing a different type of undergarment. The price of each pack of package is approximately $20 depending where they are purchased.
