Family request 6 of 6: A single mother caring for 7 children who have faced some extremely traumatizing hardships with her children over the last month and a half is now able to start fresh. After becoming homeless during Christmas, the mother subsequently lost employment. As she works to re establish herself, she is at risk for losing her mode of transportation and must pay $900 to ensure it does not become repossessed. She is a hard working parent who has been able to pay car payments on time until recently. Any help and support towards this need would be helpful in ensuring the children can remain in their new stable home. Thank you for considering.

The school is working with a single mom who has three girls. All of the girls have had a chronic lice condition which is causing them to miss school. Mom is completely overwhelmed and needs help to treat the girls professionally. Our school nurse has found a resource where they will come into the home and treat everyone. They also help educate the family on how to prevent a major infestation in the future. The family has been battling this issue for months. We are trying to find a solution that gets the girls healthy again!

Normal Request
We have a 6th grade student who lives with dad, mom is not in the picture. The student needed glasses and her dad took her to Eyemart in October. The dad put a down payment on the glasses but hasn't been able to come up with the extra money to finish paying on the glasses. He stated that he needed to pay his utilities before he could finish paying on the glasses. The student has been wearing an outdated prescription but has recently lost one lens. The student attends regularly but attends class with only one lens. The family could use assistance paying the balance at Eyemart so this student can get her new glasses.

OhioKAN is working with a devoted kinship caregiver who is in need of an electric dryer after hers broke down. She has a washer that is still in working condition, but without a dryer, she has to go to the laundromat which can be challenging with two young girls. The grandmother is disabled and has legal custody of one granddaughter and has another little one that spends a lot of time in her home. She would be so thankful to find a new or gently used dryer so she can avoid having the extra expense of a laundromat. Thank you for your consideration in helping this kinship family with a dryer!
