Opportunities for Kindness

Father lost job - Fairhope family needs assistance with utility bill and groceries


Local family of 8 was supported by one income but the father recently lost his job. Parents need assistance with $200 electric bill and $300 for groceries to get them through the next month while he looks for a new job.  Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Just click "I Can Help" to donate. 

Children finally have a home to live in - let's get them some beds!


Update: Bedding and pillows have been donated, still seeking beds.
Mom and her 5 children (3 in elementary and 2 teens) had been living in a shared residence with family and were even homeless for a short time. Now they have their own place! The teens are sharing an air mattress and the littles are sleeping on the floor. Can you help to get these kids into beds? The bedrooms are small so the need is for 2 queen sized beds and neutral colored (grey would be great) bedding for both. The teens have pillows but the 3 littles all need pillows - they are currently using stuffed animals. Delivery of items can be facilitated through neighborhood bridges. Your kindness would put a smile on these children's faces!  

Stonebridge overdue lunch balance for family in need


A family at Stonebridge Elem has accrued an overdue lunch balance of $400.00 and is unable to pay it.  All unpaid balances are due by June 13th.  Donations in any amount to help this family would be greatly appreciated!  Just Click "I Can Help" and you will receive donation instructions.  Thank you for spreading kindness in our community!

RHS Family Needs Twin Bed & Bedding


Bedding and frame have been donated - mattress only needed

A RHS family needs a twin bed, mattress, and bedding. This is a single-income household where the grandmother is sole caregiver. Grandmother suffered a broken ankle about 6 months ago and has had several surgeries to correct the injury. Unfortunately, she will still need to undergo another surgery soon. Since her injury, grandmother has been sleeping in the recliner in the living room as she cannot go upstairs to her bedroom. She is currently using a wheelchair to get around.  We are asking for a twin bed, twin mattress, and bedding for her to use in the living room. She has managed so far in the recliner but has found it very uncomfortable during her recovery and would really like to sleep in a bed for the rest of her recovery. If you are able to donate any of these items, please let us know via the I Can Help button.  

Financial Assistance Needed for Home Care Items for Disabled Foley Siblings


Update: $700 has been donated.
Two disabled elementary students in Foley are in need of care items for the summer. Their single mom has very limited income, so she is unable to afford all of the necessities required for their care when they are out of school (these things have been provided through other resources during the school year). Both children must wear night-time pull-ups around the clock - 5 per day for one and 3 per day for one, and one relies on pediatric shakes for her nutrition. The cost for a 12-week supply of these items is $1400. Please show kindness to this struggling family and donate toward the purchase. To streamline the purchase/delivery, and to make sure the correct items are provided, neighborhood bridges will use your donation to obtain these items. To contribute, click "I Can Help" and you will receive an email with a link for donating online. Thank you for helping these children and their mom get through the summer months!
