A foster family is needing help purchasing pull-ups for an 8 year old boy and a 5 year old boy as they both wet the bed on a nightly basis. The children have been to the doctor to address this issue but they are still needing pullups. Foster mom is getting frustrated with having to do laundry every day and feels pull ups will help greatly. The family and boys would be grateful to receive pull ups. This would be to help with the expense, laundry and to give these boys confidence hoping to help them wake up to go to the bathroom, stay dry and get a good nights sleep.

Oklahoma Natural Gas has disconnected the family from their gas service, and the family has no additional funds to help pay for the outstanding bill. The family consists of a single mother, a son, and two foster children. Foster mom was unfortunately let go from her position at work due to unforseen circumstances, and has had difficulty securing a new position. She continues to be incredibly patient and flexible, and steps up to gain placement of additional relatives with no other place to go. The current outstanding balance is approximately $587. Any and all assistance in bringing this balance lower will be greatly appreciated and will help bring this family back to a sense of normalcy and well deserved comfort.
