Rich from Cold Spring, NY

I'm a special need parent of a preschooler; we need supplies for the school year.

I'm hoping to have my son attend preschool in the fall. We have a hard time making ends meet, so any help to buy supplies would be appreciated.

My need and situation

I am a special needs parent of a preschooler who also has disabilities. My name is Rich, and I am currently unemployed due to an injury.

My goal is to have my son attend a special needs preschool in the fall to learn the necessary skills needed to transition to a mainstream school environment. He needs to learn how to better communicate with others, in addition to coping skills to interact more appropriately with those around him.

I need help with my son's school supplies such as pull ups, wipes, clothes, a backpack and lunch box. We are currently living on food stamps and disability benefits and things are extremely tough.

Meeting this need will help us greatly because we are struggling financially and we would like our son to be able to start off with the necessary supplies for a successful school year.

I first met Rich's wife, Alanna, when she was 4 years old and I was her preschool teacher. They then came to me as parents of a preschooler with a disability wanting to enroll their child into the Easterseals program. They both need a great deal of support and we would like to provide that for them, as well as their son, Kayden.
