Gift cards are also super helpful. People have offered gift cards to places like HEB, Target, Walmart, etc to help with basic every day needs. Diapers size 3 and up, Dr smiths diaper cream, wipes, lotion/soap, and enfamil gentlease can be useful also!!

Thanks to everyone's help, for the time being they are set on clothing! We have limits space for the next few weeks.


Men's size med tops, 32/36 bottoms, 10 shoe 



Baby size 6mo & up





Haley's baby registry was reopeneed @ Target & Pidder Patter




Until we have a storage location or know where Travis & Parker will be living we can't accept any bigger items although your generosity is greatly appreciated. Either hold on to them or please donate them to another family in need. Every family should feel as loved as yall have made the Singer's family and friends feel! Again you are all so wonderful and we couldn't be more thankful!! God Bless!

Just shy of 900 generous and lovin families have reached out to support the Singer Family. Not to mention all the other donations/fundraisers being put together across Victoria and calls I've received for out of town donations!! Yall are amazing and I'm am so so thankful for y'all's help!!! I wish I had words enoug to show not only my appreciation but Travis & Haleys families'. Please continue to pray and send hugs to them. God Bless you all!!
Aunt Lisa with beautiful healthy Parker!

Family is so overwhelmed with generosity! I know there is an IBC act set up also! How amazing! There are drop off place at Victoria archery and First Baptist. We have so many donations on the way we are worried there won't be space enough. Since Travis and Parker will be staying with family we are asking for gift cards, diapers, enfamil gentlease, and money. Once he is settled somewhere he can accept more clothing or furniture. We are so so greatful just trying to make this as easy as possible on Travis!! Thank you so so much from the bottom of our hearts!! Haley was such an amazing person it's truly wonderful to see such love for her!

I did not know Haley personally but with Victoria being my hometown this tragic event hit me hard. I have thought about Haley, her daughter, and her family, literally, non-stop since I heard about it on Wednesday. Parker reminds me so much of my 8 month old, Hadlee, in fact my oldest saw a picture of Parker on here and asked if it was her. :) I am so happy that Victoria has come together for this family and I praise God for keeping baby Parker safe and will continue to pray for strength, peace, and comfort for Haley's family and friends during this unimaginable time. I hope they will find comfort in knowing that God only takes special people to help Him in Heaven.

We want to help! We have a crib and mattress (almost new), a rainforest jumper (also almost new), a Chico highchair, and a Chico stroller (lightly used). But I don't have a truck. Can someone come and pick these items up (we live in Woodway). Prayers for peace and healing for this family.

The Amount changes cut donations keep pouring in and that's the next tier you can raise it too, so if someone set it at 50,000 & got that and another person wanted to donate their donation would be rejected cut the amount was reached. They lost everything ! A an irreplaceable human life.

What an appropriate response Jessica. I have had the same feelings. Haley was a coworker of ours and we are deeply saddened by this event. To answer one of the below questions, she worked at DeTar Hospital in Victoria. Her coworkers in the Rehab Dept are actively coming up with ways to help the family. Her baby registries have been reactivated to assist wit obtaining baby items. There are drop off sites listed above. If items are needing to be mailed, maybe the mail to one of those public locations. I know they are prob going to be inundated with many items and we are hoping to be able to help collect and organize the donations boxes. I have heard that gift cards will be much appreciated for future use in recovering from this tragedy. Thanks to everyone who has donated and helped in whatever way possible. Please continue to pray for this family.

I'm sure the amount has changed due to the growing number of donations. The family isn't asking for handouts it was set up by a friend who wanted to do what she could for them in this time of need. Of course the growing number of donations is wonderful but no matter the amount they collect to replace what they lost in the disaster no amount is going to replace the beautiful life of haley! Why question it? You can choose to help , pray, or ignore. Whatever your choice remember this can happen to anyone and I would do what I would want others to do for me or someone close to me if this happened. I'm not trying to be ugly but while people keep asking why is the amount changing I'm sitting here thinking who can ask that question to a family who lost everything and a loved one. I had the pleasure of knowing Haley from school and I am devastated that this happened to her. She wasn't someone I called or even hung out with outside of school but when you go to the same school and have the same classes you build a bond with the faces you see everyday. Haleys smile was one that was contagious. Her sweet personality and her effort she made to befriend everyone was amazing. I am deeply saddened. Even before I knew who was involved in the accident. No one wants to wake up and then have your life flash before your eyes. All I'm saying is seriously think before you ask a question like that.
