The adult has completed the requirements to become a foster parent. He is in need of assistance to be ready for a child to come to his home. The foster parent would like to request a twin bed and a chair, loveseat, or small sofa. To make room for a foster child, his daughter is giving up her queen size bed so two twin beds can fit in the bedroom. The family has one bed but would greatly appreciate assistance with the other. The family is using outdoor furniture in the living room at this time. Living room furniture would help make an inviting home for a foster child.

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.
There are no dogs in the home

There is a family who is brand new to the area and are in a financial hardship. The family consists of 2 children and 2 adults. 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. They are running very low on money to provide needs, such as food. They also have no appliances at their new house since they had to leave all of those at the old house. The family is in need of food, stove, washer and dryer. Anything you could provide would be helpful.

A 15-year-old male living with a kinship family walks to school every day. With the change in temperatures and winter coming he is in need of a pair of snow boots. He wears a size 15 so these are hard to find in-store and more expensive than a typical pair of boots. He has found a pair on Amazon, but at this family does not have the extra funds to purchase them. We are asking for help purchasing the below boots in brown size 15 wide, so he can continue to walk to school and be prepared for the cold temperatures.

Two single moms, each with 2 children, are in need of extra support. Although they are both employed, they struggle financially to make ends meet. They are in need of basic furniture items for their home, including a couch, a kitchen table with 6 chairs, a vacuum cleaner, and clothing storage items. A plastic dresser or storage cart for each child would be ideal. The children include a girl (age 10) and three boys (ages, 7, 4, & 4). Thank you for any help you may be able to provide. Having a table and chairs in time for Thanksgiving would be a blessing.

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.
