Help Improve a Child's Well-being
5
Normal Request
This is a two parent household with three children. These children have been struggling attending school this past year for many reasons, one of which being grief of lost family members within a short span of time. The family also recently moved. The 5th grader is very excited because he is close enough and old enough to begin biking to school. However, his bike is not usable. He says that it is broken. The father has been meaning to fix it, but it may be unfixable. I would love to bless this family with bicycles for the three children. This will help with transportation, as well as family activities over the summer. The 5th grader is a boy and is around 5 feet tall. There is also a 7 year old boy and an almost 6 year old girl.

High Urgency Request
Single mom of 5 children and due to have her 6th child in July. They purchased couches from Wichita and had to dispose of them due to fleas in them. Mom works a full time job to support her children and is needing some couches or couch/love seat in the living room. She can't afford to purchase another set as it isn't on her priority list with everything else the children need. Mom is struggling with a touch decision ahead of her of whether she is keep her baby or doing adoption. That stress has been weighing on her as well. This worker hopes finding some furniture for her living space will help with other stresses.
