Normal Request
This grandpa recently got custody of his 14-month-old grandson. He would love to get a sturdy high chair so that the baby can eat meals with the family. Alternatively, he would also accept a booster seat with straps that they could safely attach to the kitchen table chair. While the baby is from Albany County, grandpa lives in another county. We will arrange to bring the high chair from the office to the family. Your contribution would be much appreciated and would help create a safe, loving environment for this little boy.

High Urgency Request
The family recently became homeless due to the death of a family member. With the help of DSS, the family obtained a new apartment that they can move into today. The family lost most of their belongings and are in need of beds. The parents need a bed for themselves (full or queen) but obtaining beds for the children is the priority. The family already has a pack and play (provided by CPS), so they are only in need of a toddler bed and two twin beds.
