We have received a request from a family for help.
Can you help us help them?
This is a young mother of 2 who has taken on custody of her sister's child. She does not qualify for food stamps. Has not been able to to get help from the local food bank or the community action agency.
She isn't asking for much, so we hope there are some families out there who know where we can find a few things for them.
Help with passing her driver's test
Membership to YMCA for child activities or other community activity venues
Food for Thanksgiving
Gifts and Food for Christmas
Update on our last family.
We secured school supplies, bookbag, and a computer! Still looking for more, though. Let us know if you can help and we will send you their list. This family is in the Richmond, VA area.
If you can help, please email us at email@example.com. If you know of a business owner who is willing to help one of our families, please email us their contact information. Thank you.
Update on resources.
We have secured 200 brand new toys from Mattel in time for the holidays!
A volunteer in Fredericksburg is collecting items for kids at community events for our needs!
We have applied for Payless Shoe coupons for kids. We should hear back toward the end of November. Stay tuned.
We have extended the deadline for our door prize drawing for the iPad. We will draw names tomorrow, so you have one more day to support FACES by donating $25 or more to be entered in the drawing. You can use the button in the headline for making your donation.
