Help a Struggling Mother to Be

Recently found out my pregnant co-worker has been living in a shelter. She also has an evening job waiting tables. Considering she is due the end of January I am amazed she can still handle one much less 2 jobs. 

She has been approved for housing and that is a relief but she needs so many things for a new baby.  Her mother passed away from breast cancer and she is basically alone. Her extended family live in another state.

She will be out of work for at least 6/8 weeks and not having been with the company longer, has a limited amount of paid leave. 

Hoping to raise enough money to cover whatever she may need for the baby...which is a girl!  Also to help her the first month or so as a new mother. It is hard enough when you have a good support system, I can't imagine doing it alone. 

Despite everything she is a kind, gentle and over all amazing human being! 

If you can help even a tiny bit it would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you.
