This family just experienced a car accident that totaled the family's only mode of transportation. Unfortunately, the mothers insurance would only cover a rental car for a couple of days. Now, she is having to pay for a rental car out-of-pocket which is causing extreme financial stress. Mother is a single mother of 3 kids, 10-year-old, 6-year-old, and 6-year-old, and only makes around $2,200 a month which is considered low income. Her rent is $1,100 which takes most of her budget. Her student's have had difficulty getting to school on time since the accident because she cannot afford the rental car every week. Without a car, it takes the family about 40 minutes each day to walk to-and-from school, and Mother is unable to get to work to provide for her family. The mother is requesting a used car or cash to help with a down payment on a car. This mom would be very thankful for any support as getting this critical need met will ultimately provide some stability for her and all her children in this difficult time.
We have a family who was homeless at one time. They have stable housing now but struggle to keep up with daily living needs especially clothes for their growing three daughters. They are looking for new school clothes for the students so they can go to school with confidence. A gift card to Target or Walmart of any amount would be great.
We have 14 residents who need to stay warm this winter. Portable space heaters are dangerous and many that were donated have reached the end of their useful lives.

Please help us keep them warm this winter.
