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.

I am a school social worker at Gerner Family Education Center. Our building services ages 3-5 all of which have a variety of needs that are accommodated via special education or meet income requirements for our programming. One area that we have seen as a huge need is for diapers and pull ups. Because WIC limitations and the every rising cost of these items, we have experiencing several families that are not able to provide the appropriate amount of pull ups and diapers to meet the needs of their child. We have had several families that have to stretch their diapers beyond their use time which is causing potential skin rashes and overall discomfort for our already disadvantaged children. By having a supply of readily available pull ups and wipes for classroom and parent use would drastically fill a huge need. The size of diapers are as follows: Size 1 (infant) 2 boxes
Size 3T, 4T and 5T pull ups... Enough to give one box to each classroom. Happy Bottoms has been a great resource however with a need this large they are not able to assist.
The size of diapers are as follows: Size 1 (infant) 2 boxes
Size 3T, 4T and 5T pull ups... Enough to give one box to each high need classroom (we have around 10 high need classrooms)

Hello there, we just placed a fifteen-year-old child with her great grandmother. The great grandmother is on a fixed income and is in need of a twin mattress and box spring for the child that we placed with her today. The great grandmother is also caring for another grandchild that she has adopted.
The grandmother has had the child that we placed with her today since she was a baby. We are hoping that someone could possibly donate this item and deliver it to her home. She lives on the 5th floor at an apartment building, and it would be difficult for her financially as well as physically to get. Thank you so much for your consideration.
A, M, & G came into care do to homelessness and substance abuse by their mother. They were placed in a few traditional foster homes before being placed in a kinship home. While in the kinship home their mother passed away. Their birth father was incarcerated for a charge in his youth and was recently released. He has worked hard towards getting the kids back. He has gone to visits with them and is providing clean UAs. Their father has not been able to get A a bed yet. This is something that she needs to have before she can begin a trial home visit with her father. These babies have been through so much in their short lives. A, is only 3 years old and has already seen homelessness, trauma, and the loss of her mother. We want to do whatever we can to give her a normal and happy childhood going forward. A needs a bed. Dad has been able to get a bunk bed for the boys, though they could use pillows.
