Please contact OkiMom if you have things for this family.

What is your family situation?
Im a single mom who is working and going to school. I was hoping to have my financial aid money bail me out this year (im getting a loan for the first time), but due to one issue after another with the school, I’m still waiting, and buried in payday loans because of it. My son just turned 4, and is a wonderful boy. My mom moved in with us about a year ago, and I’m supporting her as well.

Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (e.g. cat, dog, smoke) no
Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate? Religious christmas

Of the items requested below, please prioritize the top 3 overall needs of your family (this can not include direct financial help such as bills paid):
