Help a family start over

My sister, Starla, and her four children, are starting over in Montana after fleeing a domestic violence situation. While local resources have placed her in a new living location, she and the children are starting over again with almost nothing. Even worse, the family now has Covid-19, leaving Starla with no way to currently work and provide for the family.

Starla has help from her oldest, Brandon, but the other three children are young and depend on her for care. She and Brandon are the sickest in the family, and are in immediate need of household items and things to entertain the littles while the family recovers from Covid. 

Things this money will be used for: paying bills while the family recovers from Covid-19; household items like furniture, towels, bedding, etc.; kleenex, medicine, and other goods used when ill; groceries; children's toys, clothing, and toiletries; adult clothing and toiletries; other items the family might need in the next few months while they get back on their feet.

It takes a brave woman to uproot her family and leave everything behind in order to escape a violent partner. Anything you can donate to help them get back on their feet would be immensely helpful and would go towards helping this family of five (Starla; Brandon, age 16; Dominick, age 11; Hayden, age 9; and Breanna, age 6). Thank you!

-Raven (Starla's sister)
