Received: Jul 10 2018

The family has four children, ages 8, 5, 3, and 1. The eight-year-old and the five-year-old are currently having to share a full-sized mattress in the floor because the family has been unable to afford to get each child their own bed. The family recently moved to the Mooresville area from another state and they are in need of these items to help them settle into their new home and to ensure that the children have appropriate sleeping arrangements. The father to two of the children lives in the home and works full-time. The mother stays at home to care for the children because she does not have childcare. The family is in need of bed rails for a full-sized bed, as well as a twin sized bed, mattress, and box springs. If this is not available, they could use a set of bunkbeds instead. Bedding for both beds would also be helpful to the family if it is available. The beds are for the two boys, ages 8 and 5. The one year old child has a crib, however, they are in need of a mattress for the crib if available.


Needs: Twin bed frame, Twin mattress, Twin box spring, Twin bedding for 8 year old boy, Bed rails for full size bed, Full size bedding for young boy or neutral, Crib mattress

Our agency is currently working with a family that consists of a mother, father, and a sixteen month old girl. The family recently moved out of the Shelter and has obtained their own housing and are working on rebuilding their lives. Both parents are working, but the mother is only working part time and the father is working an “under the table” job which is not consistent. The family has obtained some items for their home already, but they are still in need of several additional items, so this is quite a large request. They are in need of a window A/C unit, as they do not have one for their bedroom and it can become quite warm when they are trying to sleep. The mother found and purchased a large refrigerator, but upon plugging it in found that it only blows out hot air. The family is in need of either a new refrigerator or someone who can repair their current refrigerator. They are currently borrowing a mini refrigerator from a friend but will only be able to use it for a short amount of time. The child is in need of a high chair as well as safety child locks for the cabinets and safety child covers for the door knobs. The family’s oven also broke shortly after moving in so they would benefit from an oven to cook meals with. The family also does not have a kitchen table to eat at and would benefit from having a table with chairs so that they have a place to eat meals together as a family. Lastly, the parents are currently sleeping on an air mattress on the floor and although they did not ask for a bed, they would benefit from a full size bed if one is available. The family would greatly appreciate any donations available for their new home.

**Family has already received oven, cabinet locks, high chair, kitchen table & chairs, and a full mattress only. Items still needed are listed below.


Needs: Refrigerator, Safety Child covers for door knobs, Window A/C Unit, Full size bed frame, Full size bedding set, Full box spring (mattress not needed)
