Hello, I have a 17 year old, male, who would love to spend his Christmas break with his older brother and extended family in Minnesota. Child has not seen his older brother in years and would really like to go. This child's goal is to age out in May 2024 when he graduates high school. Child's plan is to age out and move to Minnesota where his older brother will be able to be a huge support to him and help guide him as he navigates adulthood. Spending his winterbreak with his family would be a great opportunity for them to strengthen their bond and spend time together before child's next big step of aging out. Any help towards a round trip airplane ticket would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Baby R came into foster care in Oklahoma, and was placed with his grandmother in Missouri in November. Grandma is in need of some baby supplies to help meet Baby R's needs and make things easier and more comfortable for both of them. She has asked for help getting a baby bottle warmer, humidifier, baby monitor, and Similac Sensitive formula. She also stated he wears size 2 diapers and she is always in need of diapers and wipes for him. She also identified footless pajamas as a need, because Baby R does not like his feet in pajamas. Since Baby R is an out of state placement, grandma will not get as much support from the state for fostering, and will not have access to as many resources, so any support that can be offered will help. If you can help make life a little bit easier for Baby R and grandma, please reach out! Thank you.

A single mom with 3 young children has fled a violent situation and is trying very hard to get back on her feet and support her family. Her current vehicle has been very unreliable and has required multiple service repairs. It is also not large enough to properly accomodate 3 carseats. Both mom and I realize this is a very big ask, but if you know someone that has a reliable and safe vehicle that they are interested in donating to a very sweet and gracious young mom who could really use the support, please let me know. Or, if you would be willing to help with the cost of her current car repairs, please let me know and I will provide further details. Thank you!
