Last night I found out my friend Erica and her three sons were living in a shelter for the past 3 weeks. She has a 2 month old son, who is my nephew Gianni, Dante who is in kindergarden and Memphis who is a happy fourth grader. I offered up my home to them until she can land on her feet and get a job and an apartment, but there are many things that she and her family need.

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!

XOXO

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.

Sending warm wishes for happier days ahead and a wonderful holiday season. Our son is 9 months old and we have clothes he has outgrown that we can send for the baby if you'd like them. Please just let us know where to send them. Lots of love and hugs to you all.
