I have a high school student who is currently living in a hotel with his mother. He informed me they are struggling with food. Student informed me his mom is trying as hard as she can. She is currently working 12 hour night shifts to try to help them get back on their feet. I am hoping to get them a $100+ Walmart gift card. This would help elevate some of the stress student and mother are feeling for the need of food. This will also allow them to get any personal hygiene or clothing products they may need.
