Recently Filled Needs

Donations needed for family of 6


A family of 6 is in need of school supplies and clothing for school.  This family missed the deadline for Welcome Warehouse's Back to School Outreach so Welcome Warehouse has asked Dublin Bridges to assist them.  They do have a future appointment with WW for clothing but not until the end of the month.  We are seeking donations to get them a Target gift card so that they can buy supplies and a few clothing items to tide them over for a couple of weeks.
Thanks!

Computer Desk Needed


Welcome Warehouse is looking for a smaller computer desk for a local family. The father is overseas receiving medical treatment and the mother is here with her three children. The oldest two need a desk for their computer and to do homework.  They would prefer a smaller one as there is not a lot a lot of space in the apartment. If you have one you are willing to donate, we can pick it up as soon as this Thursday afternoon 8/8.
Thanks!

Homeless Family in Need of Housing Funds


We are working with the Dublin Food Pantry to assist a dad and pregnant mom with funds for an extended stay hotel.  The father lost his job and the mother is unable to work at this time for medical reasons.  They have applied for other assistance and also employment. We would like to help them with a weeks' stay at an extended stay to help them get back on their feet.
Thanks!

Senior Citizen in need of wheelchair repair costs


Syntero has brought us a need for a low income senior citizen who has MS. She is disabled  and uses an electric wheel chair to aid her mobility. She is very dependent on using the wheelchair.  The chair is in dire need of repairs as it is currently not working and she is unable to get around. The basic repair costs for the wheel chair is $661.39. She can't afford to pay for these repair costs. We are seeking donations of financial assistance for the payment of these repair services.  

Thanks!

High Chair Needed


We are looking for a high chair for a single mom to use for her 7 month old baby girl.  The mom has fallen on hard times and cannot currently afford to buy all of the necessities for her daughter.  We are hoping to find  a gently used, non recalled high chair.  We will happily pick it up from you if you have one to donate.
Thanks!

Baby items needed


A representative from the Dublin City Schools has alerted us to a homeless family currently staying in an extended stay hotel with a 7 month old baby and a 1st grader.  They have fallen on hard times and are in need of  formula and diapers.    We would appreciate any PayPal donations to go towards the formula and diapers. 
Thanks!

Convertible Car Seat Needed


Welcome Warehouse is working with a family who just relocated to Dublin.  The parents started their jobs here two weeks ago and finances are currently tight. Their vehicle was involved in a crash and they can no longer use their car seat for their infant daughter. They do not have funds to replace the seat. We are looking for a convertible car seat, new or gently-used (unexpired and no recalls). 
Thanks!

Volunteer Face Painter(s) Needed for Welcome Warehouse


Welcome Warehouse has a last-minute need for one or two volunteers to do face painting for the kids participating in our Back-to-School Outreach on Saturday August 3 from 9am-12pm.  We will reimburse you for the cost of paint supplies. Please let us know if you can help, thanks!

Bicycle Needed


A Dublin family that is fostering is looking for an adult-size women's bike for their foster child. Please let us know if you have one in good working order that you would like to pass on.
Thanks!

Funds needed for extended stay for homeless couple


The Dublin Food Pantry, along with an advocate at a Dublin church, have contacted Dublin Bridges on behalf of a homeless couple  that have been living in their car.  The female has had ongoing health issues, including a seizure disorder, which has prevented her from working recently. Medical bills have caused significant financial burden, which resulted in them living out of their car. The male has been working to obtain gainful employment, but cannot begin work until he receives his discharge paperwork from the army. The Dublin Food Pantry has been providing the couple with food and Dublin Bridges would like to pay for this couple to have a week at an extended stay hotel, so that they are able to shower, have a safe place to sleep and cook food, while they work to get back on their feet and finalize plans for employment. If you are able to help, please use our PayPal link to provide donations. 
Thanks!

Washer Repair Needed


Welcome Warehouse is working with a family of 6 who is in need of repairs to their washing machine. The family's income is limited and they do not have funds to pay for a repair or purchase a new machine. If repair is not feasible the family would also be grateful for a donated used machine.
Thanks!
