Please contact OkiMom, if you have something for this family.

What is your family situation? After a short layoff, dh is working again, but making just enough to pay our bills and not do anything beyond that (like buy clothes or dish soap). I am a full-time student and homeschooling the kids. I've been avoiding applying to be a HH family because I thought I should leave it for people who "really need the help," but I realized today that we're those people. I've been wanting to buy pants for our younger boys that actually fit (theirs' are getting short) and I don't have money in the budget for it.

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

Please list up to 3 items per person in your family and up to 2 items for your family as a whole below. Gift cards might be requested for your family as a whole, but cannot be included as requests for an individual member of your family. Remember HH does not provide direct financial help, such as bills paid, so please do not include such items in your request.
