She would be very grateful for someone to come and help her remove curtain rods and a TV/TV mount. Possibly looking for help patching holes in apartment walls from these items as well, if required by current landlord.

A fatherand his five children went through a traumatic experience in April when his wife, and the mother of his children, passed away. He was left to care for the children, and his three younger children struggled with getting enrolled in school. This is due to the fact that his own mother died of COVID and he was scared to put the children in public school. The youngest child has Beckwith-Weidemann syndrome so this father has a lot on his plate. His wife had previously taken care of getting the children enrolled in school and making sure that medical needs were met. Currently, the family is living off of the children's survivor benefits while he is trying to get everything in order. The children just started online school and are switching between 1 family laptop to get all of their schooling done. This family would really appreciate three laptops or tablets that his children can complete their schooling on.

The Department is working with a 15 year old girl who has been in and out of placement since she was a young child. She is currently in placement due to substance abuse by her mother. The placement is struggling financially and I am requesting additional fun things for the child to do. She likes going to movies, chick fil A, going to the mall and doing make up. It would be awesome to have some fun things she can do with her friends where she does not feel like she needs to ask her placement.

The child is female and 10 years old. She is going into the 5th grade and has been placed with her grandma who is in her 70's. The grandma has asked for support in getting the youth some clothes and would like the youth to be able to pick what she wants to wear. The family does not have a car and the grandma is waiting to get wrist surgery so it is hard for her to get around. A gift card to Wal-mart would help as she can get clothes and snacks for the youth.

There are three children in this household, three boys ages 12, 10 and 8 years. The 8 year old has special needs, limited mobility, and is non verbal. These boys do not have many items to promote healthy activities, they all love sports and would be so grateful for any sports equipment, especially any football equipment for them to enjoy together and get out of the house. A gift card to help them purchase such items, or any equipment that could be shared with them would be a huge help to their mental health and well-being, thank you for your consideration
