My need and situation
I am a single mother of 7 beautiful children. I went back to school to receive my high school diploma. I am looking for employment and once I'm done I want to go to college. After losing my job and being homeless, we lost everything, even my car.
My goals are to earn my high school diploma to get my family on the path towards a stable home.
I need clothes, boots and coats for my children. I want to give them the gift of confidence by providing them decent clothing that they can wear year-round.
Meeting this need will help me because my children will be warm and have clothes that fit them comfortably.
Thank you for helping Lisa fund this need.
