Family of 5 faces difficult time
Thank you our generous community, especially the United Methodist Foundation and Harmony Elementary, for helping this family stay in their home and have some additional needed resources!
A family with 3 children is struggling to make ends meet and keep everything as normal as possible for the children right now. The dad had a new full time over the summer but was let go after 90 days without warning because the season had slowed down. He just found a new job in Portland for a moving company that starts tomorrow. In addition, the mom is very ill with an umbilical hernia and will have surgery soon but will need to be down for six weeks. This will be very challenging with two of children having autism and a 4 year old toddler in the home. This family is desperately trying to stay in their home but will not have the $1000.00 for rent in October. Their biggest need right now is finding help to pay their rent so they can stay in their home.
I am also helping the family with food resources and clothing for the kids. One boy and one girl both wear size medium in shirts, and 7/8 in pants and size 13 or 1 in shoes. The toddler wears a 5T in tops and pants and a size 10 in shoes. If you have any of these clothing items that you would like to donate, please let me know.
