What is your family situation?
Hi! We're a family of 5 struggling to keep afloat. Holidays have been tough the last few years because Mamma hasnt been working and Dad hhas taken 2 paycuts over the last 3 years. We are scheduled for another paycut starting NOV1. Children dont have a lot of "wants" but need winter basics that we are having a tough time setting aside money to purchase. We get paid 2x a month, thhe 1st paycheck is usually enough for the mortgage and the second is half utilities half food. There just isnt any money to spend on or save for anything else. :-( ANY help is greatly appreciated.


Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? none

Please prioritize the top 3 needs of your family:
*Winter coats,hats,mittens/gloves and boots for Children
