Family in need (Hilliard School District)
I have a need for an advocate working with a family who moved from Dublin to the Hilliard City School District on May 1. Their previous apartment had bed bugs and they had to discard most of their furniture. They are in need of a sofa and chairs, as well as a washer and dryer for their new place. The father has recently returned to work after being off for a few months because he was severely injured in an accident. The family does not have funds to purchase furniture and appliances. We will make separate arrangements for the washer and dryer.
