Opportunities for Kindness
A Heritage and Westerville North family recently experienced a house fire and are moving into an apartment on Feb. 1 and is now in need of some furniture as they resettle into their new home.
The family is asking for help with the following:
- 3 twin beds/mattresses
- 1 queen bed/mattress
- 3 dressers
- 2 night stand
- 2 bedroom lamps
- kitchen table and chairs (5 family members)
An elementary student in Westerville has been removed from his home but is now in a stable family that would like to adopt him. Unfortunately, the family cannot afford the $2000 it would cost to pay the attorney to complete the adoption process.
Since this student was placed with this family, he has had good attendance and is growing as a student by leaps and bounds. Per his teacher - "If ever a kid deserved a break, it’s this one. Despite all he has been through, he is unfailingly kind and sunny."
We are hoping to raise $2000 to help this family or find an attorney willing to help pro bono or for a reduced rate.
