Family DC

has had to quit her job to take care of her daughter and her husband.

had an accident 5 days after his daughter was born.
he has brain damage, blind in one eye and deaf in one ear.

was born with medical complications.
has had extensive surgery. she has been
in the hospital since birth and has just
been released.
she is fed through a feeding tube and has
a central line.
the hospital released her without a
good care plan. and the mom
is in over her head.

daughter needs 18month to 2t clothing.
age appropriate toys, books.

family really needs rent assistance
so that they are not evicted at the end
of this month. we can set up an account
with her caseworker if needed.

i am sure that they would be grateful for
a target or safeway card for food and supplies.

Family EPA

young single mom with medical challenges.
birthdad is in jail.
son is 5 months old.

she is isolated and only travels on the bus.

mom could use a bus pass.
target or safeway card.

son- 6 month+ boys clothing.
age appropriate toys and books.

Family MP

struggling single mom.
with 3 year toddler.

like every other single mom
out there, she is struggling to
keep a roof over her family's head,
food in the frig and gas in her car.

a target or safeway card to
buy groceries and clothing.
gas card

size 6 diapers and wipes.

a warm parka size 5T boys
size 10 boys shoes and sox.

anything thomas train....

mom would love
a warm robe. size 3x.
fuzzy warm sox.

Project Warm Hug's
wish list.

i am included this because honestly i really
need some help...

earlier this year, i was about to close down this
project. the funding that i had hoped for didn't come
through, the amount of time i devote to this project
was cutting into the time i need to work to provide for
my family (single mom with a 3 year old son)....

but.... i know that there are many many single moms
out there who are all struggling like i am. i decided to
do just what i could to support this "invisible community"

so here is my wish list.

1- i would love for 100 fleece blankets to be sponsored.
at $5.00 a piece.- this is one of our fundraisers.
this blankets will be given to local moms in need.
all blankets are made by local moms.

2. i would love for 100 flannel blankets to be sponsored
at $20.00 a piece- this is also one of our fundraisers.
these blankets will be given to local moms in need.
all blankets are made by local moms.

3. i would love for our $6,000 budget for this year and same
for next year to be covered. this is tough since i am just
a mom trying to make a difference, not a formal 501c3.

4. i would love to have a couple of volunteers each month
help me to pick up donations and deliver them.

ok, here is my personal wish list.... since a few of you have asked.

i would love to have cable again, and a tv that works.

i would love a digital camera and printer....

i would love for my attorney bill to be paid so that i can finalize my
son's adoption.... (approx $1400)

i would love for my car to be paid off so that i don't have that payment to make.

i would love for my dog's vet bill to be paid ($400).
this was for the vet to come to my house when my
dog was ill and passed away....

i would love for william to have his own room and for us
not to need to rent out our second bedroom... and to
live in a safer neighborhood....

i would love to be able to work this project full time....
and be able to provide for my family....

and i would love a new pair of earrings.

thanks, m
for more info.

Hi Megan,

My name is Melissa -- I'm the girl who called you today about donating kids clothes. (I'm one of five kids raised by my single mom, and was often a beneficiary of programs like yours while I was growing up.) We'd like to help Family DC. I will be bringing baby clothes, etc. to you for them. I need to talk to my husband tonight about how much we can help out financially, so I will have to get back to you about that.

THANK YOU for your good work. I will see you later today.
