Please contact weliveintheforest if you have things for this family.

What is your family situation? We are a family of 5, with a 16 year old, 8 year old and a 5 year old. DH works full time and I am currently unemployed and we are paying child support for our step-children. We currently receive only medicaid for the kids because before child support, We make $30 too much gross income (before Child support) to qualify for assistance. They will not count the amount of child support until after we meet the gross income requirements, which we do not. If not for food banks and help from family, our children would not have food or winter coats this year. We have no money after bills and basic groceries for Christmas or birthdays.

Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (e.g. cat, dog, smoke) None
Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate? Christmas/Solstice
