Please contact QueenOfTheMeadow if you have something for this family.

What is your family situation
Both of us are working…me part time at night and dad full time, but his most important tools were stolen at a work site, and we can’t afford to replace them right now so he is limited to lower paying labor work. Our financial situation is precarious although we manage to piece it together. We have no help/contact with any extended family and our oldest has needs that require me to SAH during the day limiting the amount of hours I can work.
Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (e.g. cat, dog, smoke) no, just dietary restrictions

Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate? We don’t do a secular Christmas but we enjoy celebrating traditional winter activities (i.e making a gingerbread house as a family) and we still love to give the kids gifts.
