Please contact Thursday Girl if you have something for this family.

What is your family situation?

I am a single mom taking care of my disabled special needs son and raising my 4 year old granddaughter whom I recieved custody of when she was a baby when social services stepped in and wanted to take her away.I work 2 jobs to support us but it isn't enough.I now have daycare,family insurance pay and willingly gave up my house because I couldn't afford the payments anymore..My granddaugter also has severe food allergies so I can't just go buy food anywhere..It can get pretty $$ so our food budget is pretty bare and minimal.I don't have much left after I pay the rent,electric,car insurance,daycare,ect...I make too much to get help but don't bring home enough to buy the basics...I have tried to find a different job that works better but daycare is a problem also..Plus with the economy so bad I am scared to leave my job even though it isn't enough..There is really never enough left for extras and certainly not for Christmas...This year it makes me really sad and upset because my 4 year old is already talking about the tree,lights and what Santa is going to bring her..We didn't have a tree last year and she didn't really notice but she will this year..I am a hard worker.I hate asking for help..But for her I will..Thank you so much for even considering us.

Allergies? My granddaughter is allergic to Gluten,Dairy,Soy.

What Holiday to you celebrate? Christmas(with Santa).

She also loves to read..We don't have many books..She loves big bright colorful books that she "pretends" to read. She would also love a Preschool Workbook (like the kind you can buy at Walmart). She looks at them all the time.

Needs for the family.
1).Our biggest need as a family is groceries..There is never enough in our house..My grocery budget is 30$ a week and it buys the basics..My grandaugter doesn't ask for much but she loves Fruitabu Strawberry Fruit roll-ups,Annies Strawberry fruit snacks,Surf Sweets gummy worms and gummys(the fruitycreamy kind),Kinni vanilla cookies(gluten free kind)and Whole foods mini marhmellows in the deli..Our Whole foods if almost 2 hours away and I hardley get there because of gas and cost so these are truely a special treat for her.

2) Grocery gift cards to either or Whole Foods..I can get so many of my granndaugters special foods from amazon and whole foods..

Thank you so much for thinking of our family...
