Homeless Mom + 3 kids need help
$3,140 of $5,000 goal
While I wish I had the means to provide everything for her and the boys, I am afraid my famous hugs don't hold any monetary value or else man would I be rich!
They are in need of basic living necessities that we take for granted: a winter coat, gloves, scarves, jammies, shoes, pants, shirts, a stroller, diapers, blankets, wipes, onesies etc. She has no clothes and one pair of shoes herself.
Not to mention that Christmas is right around the corner. While I don't believe in overloading kids with all of the toys in the world and useless nonesense I do believe having some toys to open is something special. They came here with one small bag of legos, and that's it.
Once she gets her apartment she will need beds for everyone, dishes, pots + pans, pretty much everything.
Anything you can donate will help. Any amount. I am so thankful knowing I am part of a caring + generous community. It is not easy to ask for help, and even harder to accept it. But she needs all the help she can get for these beautiful little boys.
thank you so so so much!

Many have been asking about Christmas gifts etc. and so i decided to create a wish list on Target.com of necessities for the baby and a few toys for the kids for Christmas.

Hi Carla - are you taking apartment donations now? I just emptied a storage unit that basically had a second home worth of stuff that I was going to just drop at good will but would happily bring some items home with me to CT this weekend.
The mom is a a size large top and 14 bottom I believe from a facebook post. The two older kids are size meduim and large tops and 5T and 10 bottom.
What is mom's clothing sizes/style?
What size clothes are the two older kids in....My son is in 4th grade and I am sure we can spare some clothes if they are the same size
