Our older youth was in florida when she was pulled over for driving without headlights on, and driving without a license. She was driving to pick up her 6 month old daughter from the person who was watching her. This youth has been trying to work and get the money to pay for the tickets but the cost of having her daughter, and getting her the items that she needs comes first. The tickets are $113 and $166. we are desperately trying to help her pay this so that she does not get a warrant issued for not paying the fines. She has been an amazing mother to her daughter, and this has been a stressful situation for her.

I have a family of 4 that is going through a tough time financially & could use a new microwave. The microwave they have now is broken & a new microwave could help the family with quick meals to help the kids before going to school and after. Once this need is met, the family will have ways for the kids to warm something up in a timely manner if they need to.
