A single mother of four is needing some assistance to help children. She is not working at this time due to the cost of daycare and has three children that are not yet in school and one being an infant. She has utilized her older car seat from her other children for the infant, but she is asking for assistance with a newer car seat that will transition as the child ages and the baby is currently about 4 1/2 months old but bigger than the average child at that age. In the request the toddler/convertible car seat was chosen as mom would like one that transitions but want to again point out that kiddo is still an infant so chose the most accurate for description purposes. She also would like to get a pack 'n play for her baby with a fitted sheet. She does not want a crib and has specifically asked for a pack 'n play only. In addition to that, the mom could also use some help with clothing for all of the children. There is a boy who is 6 years old and would wear size 7 or 8, medium, two girls ages 3 and 4 and similar in size so sizes 4 and 5 would be fine for both. The 4 1/2 month could benefit from clothing sizes 6 months and above. All of this will help keep the kiddos safe, warm, and ready for the ever-changing weather and help alleviate some of the financial stress on the mom. Thanks!
We can help with the pack n play and crib sheet. If mom has transportation, she can visit our church's Impact Center and pick out clothes for her kiddos. She just needs to make an appointment. If she doesn't have transportation, we may be able to pick up clothing for her.

This child/family is in need of financial assistance in funding the child’s tuition. The father shares that once he’s caught up on the past due tuition for the child, he’ll maintain the weekly cost as he recently started a new job. This child is not only missing school, but he’s missing out on his daily learning opportunities & his social interactions with his friends. The child has continued sharing his wishes to return to school.
Once the tuition is paid in full, the child is unable to return, leaving dad at risk of unemployment. Please consider helping this family! Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

I hope you are well.
From the request, it was mentioned that the 12 yr old boy is in need of a twin bed. I have a member at my church who has a twin bed and box spring in good condition that she would like to donate to someone who needs it. Would this family be interested?
