A family with four young children (ages 1, 3, 4, and 5) could use help obtaining a toddler mattress and a playpen. They were able to obtain beds for the other three children, but did not have sufficient funds to purchase a toddler mattress and a playpen. The mother is also requesting educational toys, "I know that's extra, but I would really love to be able to get them educational toys if possible." The family does not have much furniture in the house, although they will be receiving two dressers and an arm chair through a previous request. They could also use a couple more dressers, something like plastic ones for children would work great. Thank you for your generosity, this will make a big impact on this family!

We have a single local foster mom who has been providing emergency respite/placement for teens in need that would otherwise be spending nights in the office. She has opened up her home for well over 20 kiddos since she has been fostering and has been spending her own money to buy clothing and toiletries for teens that usually only have one set of clothing and often times even shoes that don't even fit. She will often take the children to Walmart to buy the children the essential items they need and can take with them while going home to home until permanent homes can be found. The foster mom and children would benefit greatly from any sort of donations such as Walmart/Walgreens gift cards so she can buy these teens clothing and essential toiletry items they need and can take with them.
