Grandma is the caregiver for the children in the family. She is living off of her social security and cannot afford to buy 2 new tires for her 2004 CRV. She indicated that her car also has an oil leak. Grandma does not have disposable income and with the holidays coming up it's even harder to afford all that they need.
Helping this family with tires and possibly with the oil leak will help them to have an easier and less stressful holiday season.
The car leak estimate is from a google search, it is not known what the cost would be to look into a repair. Tires would be closer to that $100 a piece number. Her car currently has Pirelli tires.

A family of a single mom of 5 has been homeless since July after being told they would be removed from the apartment due to the property management’s stipulation of not having more than 2 persons per room, and they were residing in a 2 bedroom apartment. The younger two children (17 and 12) have been residing at friend’s house’s to remain in their same schools, Mom and the three younger children, ages 8 and below, have been staying with Mom’s sister when she has her custodial time, and the children stay with their bio-dad on his custodial time, in which Mom sometimes stays in her vehicle. Mom works full time but has been struggling to pay a previous Evergy bill, which was in her name only and not her ex-husband and has prevented her from getting a place of her own. Mom has attempted to get relief with the LiHeap program but has misplaced SSN cards for the children due to being homeless, which are required for the application. She has gotten it down to $538, but with having to pay for her storage unit that houses the family’s belongings and trying to pay down her car payment that her ex-husband had said he would pay for child support payments but has failed to do so for the past 3 months, it has been an increasing struggle. Mom is hoping to reunite with all her children in a home of their own, but can’t due to the evergy and car payment bills having a negative effect on her credit.

Father of 3 needing assistance with paying for gas and groceries. The family has just recently gotten into an apartment after living between a car and a hotel for months. After utilities and rent were paid no money remains for gas to get the kids to summer school, to pick up groceries, and get Dad to work.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated
***Update*** Utilities for this family have been disconnected. Some payments have been made however, a $2,000 balance remains to reconnect service. A mother with two kids is in need of assistance with utilities asap. The family was abandoned by the husband/father and is now at risk for service disconnection. The mother works hard but has been struggling to stay on top of things since being abandoned by her husband. She's been trying to borrow money from family and friends but time is running out. She is afraid that losing electricity will put the family at risk and that her children could possibly be taken from her. Any Assistance for this family would be greatly appreciated. Mom received a shut-off notice on 5/23/22 for $3,265.24
A family with 3 children is in need of assistance to pay for the father's surgery, so that they don't fall behind on rent. The father is the only source of income for the family, so recovering from surgery will also impact the family's income and ability to pay bills.
As a previous worker at Children's Division I know first hand the stress and hard work these workers go through. I would love to spread some love to the local Children's Division office downtown KC by supplying them with an Ice Maker. This seem like a small thing but they have been needing an ice maker since I was there 2 1/2 years ago and even before then. They have an older fridge that they have some ice trays in the freezer but that is not enough for everyone to add some ice to their beverages. An Ice maker would be a huge blessing to these workers as they can grab ice and water on their way to their next visit. They could grab ice for the soda donated to them from churches.
I have done some research on ice makers and have found a few that could work for their break room space. I am asking $500 for the ice maker and an additional $500 to help cheer up their break room adding new chairs, tables and items to make it feel more inviting and comfortable.
These items could go a long way for these workers and just in time for the hot days coming up! Thank you!
