My foster home is a relative placement for her neice and newphew. She has been placement for them for over a year and they are needing two twin beds as the twins are growing. This need would greatly benefit the foster parent but the children as well. They have recently moved and are needing these beds as the twins are growing out of these current beds.
Thank you for your help & I look forward to hearing from anyone willing to help this great family!
A grandmother is the primary caretaker of her three grandsons, one of whom is already adopted and the other two are in the process of being adopted. In June of 2023, the family lost their home to a fire and were unable to save any personal items. They have recently found housing and have some furniture, but they are needing more. The family is needing a full size mattress and bed frame for the grandmother, 3 dressers for each of the boys, a tv for the living room, and a washer and dryer.

Hello there, we just placed a fifteen-year-old child with her great grandmother. The great grandmother is on a fixed income and is in need of a twin mattress and box spring for the child that we placed with her today. The great grandmother is also caring for another grandchild that she has adopted.
The grandmother has had the child that we placed with her today since she was a baby. We are hoping that someone could possibly donate this item and deliver it to her home. She lives on the 5th floor at an apartment building, and it would be difficult for her financially as well as physically to get. Thank you so much for your consideration.

I am hoping that I can find someone that wants to help a recently single mom who has found the courage to leave an abusive partner and start over with five children. Children age in the range of 4 to 13 and three have special needs. This mom has worked hard to secure a duplex for the next two years and works for the school district so she can be home with the kids when not in school. I hope whoever receives this request knows how deserving this precious family really is. Through all the troubles this family has endured through faith and family. They have always welcomed everyone with smiles and laughter. I am hoping to help them by getting twin bunk beds with plastic protectors and extra mattress pads.

8 year old girl is the sibling of newborn who is currently admitted to CMH due to medical concerns and there is no discharge date in sight as of now. Mother has been out of work since a couple months prior to birth due to high-risk pregnancy and with baby being admitted to hospital her date to start working again is delayed even further. Father has also had to take FMLA from work which has resulted in less income for the family. The little girl turns 9 y/o next Friday 9/15/23. Mom reached out to DCF to see if we can assist with items for her birthday as mom doesn’t want her to feel even more left out/unimportant since mom and dad’s attention lately has been focused more on baby in the hospital. Mom wants her to have a good birthday but can’t afford birthday gifts for her.
