Normal Request
Platte County has a small food pantry cabinet that needs restocked. We are requesting non-perishable, but microwavable items. Such as Chef Boyardee cups/meals, mac-n-cheese cups, Hormel Complete Meals, etc.; also peanut butter and jelly are good options. Please nothing that has to be refrigerated or frozen as we do not have space to keep that and neither do some families. Please nothing that requires added ingredients, except water.

A single mother and her 3 year old daughter are in temporary housing due to a fire at their home. The family is struggling financially and the mother is trying to get back on her feet. The 3 year old needs clothing and mom also needs assistance for Christmas. A gift card to Walmart or Target would help cover Christmas. The 3 year old wears size 6/7 girls, and loves bright colors. Shoe size is size 11. Thank you!

Haley: Hi there, we would love to help out. Is the clothing for the 3 year old separate from the size 6/7 clothing - just confused that those were separate boxes to check. Let me know how we can get this to you/how much in gift cards vs. clothes. Thanks!

Normal Request
I am working with a single mom and her 2 children who are living in a trailer. Mom struggles financially and is on a tight budget.The childrens father is involved periodically but does not help mom fianancially. Mom's trailer is older and has needed a number of repairs since she moved in. Most of her monthly income goes to cover lot rent for the trailer. At this time, this is their only housing option. Mom recently got water again, however the hot water tank on the trailer is not working so they do not have any hot water. I got an estimate on a new tank and installation from a plumber that is sadly higher than I expected. The water heater has a whole in it and needs to be replaced at a cost of $600. The labor cost is $250. I am putting in a request for help with any part of this cost. I will look for other funding resources to cover the amount that is left. I am appreciative of any help with this.

Brenda: My neighbor who is a plumber might be able to help out. How many gallons for the hot water heater? We are guessing for a trailer it would be smaller than for a house.

Critical Request
This family had their rent money stolen recently and need help paying their rent so they don't get evicted. They are also lacking money for diapers for a young child (size 5 diapers please). Meeting these needs will help ensure the family is able to stay in their home and can provide for the children in the home. Please contact me for the family's contact information.

Critical Need
A single mom with an 8 year-old boy and 9 year-old girl coming out of homelessness after losing disability benefits and are in major need of funding for utility bills. Dad is an addict and not in the picture and uncle on dad's side is helping them get stable. They are staying in an empty house owned by a relative of the uncle and he is paying their rent for now but they are living with no furniture, water or electricity. There are past due balances and activation fees on the electric and water that need to be paid in order for them to be turned on, totaling almost $1500, but any amount helps! We are hoping the CarePortal community can contribute some funds to help get the utilities turned on for this family.

Normal Need
We previously helped this family with light bill from a CarePortal Request (53051) - a single mom of an 8 year-old girl with severe anxiety and seizures, and a 6 year old boy with a variety of medical issues leading to immobility, obesity and developmental delays. Mom works literally around the clock to provide all of the extra care they need, on top of having her own medical issues she is trying to address for the first time in years. Since the original request, we have been getting to know the family and providing additional items as needed. Mom is very sweet, thankful and responsible and it has been a joy to support them. She never wants to ask for help but recently shared that bathing her son at his size is very difficult and taxing for her, and that having a special showered and chair would be a huge help and relieve a lot of the stress around caring for her high-needs son. Additionally, their AC went out over the Summer so we are looking for funding for a window unit that was provided to them. Thank you for any help you can provide!
