Please contact weliveintheforest if you have things for this family.

What is your family situation?
We are a family of 7, my husband, myself and 5 young boys. DH works full time at minimum wage which means he brings home about $200 a week.I am a SAHM and I usually work 1-2 days with my girlfriend cleaning houses but this is the slow season when the rich people go South to warmer weather so until Spring we're dependent on DH's paycheck. (Rent alone takes more than half of that)
Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (e.g. cat, dog, smoke) no.

Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate?Christmas, Easter, St Patricks Day, Thanksgiving
