Denise D. and her daughters have been abundantly blessed with gifts and donations! I am pleased to report that all of her immediate needs are being met! She has received gifts of towels, sheets, personal care items, comforters, pillows, mattress pads, groceries, toys and gifts for the girls for Christmas. A big, personal thank you to all who have helped!
Denise has been spending time getting replacements of their social security cards, birth certificates, etc. Talk about red tape! She is working with her advocate on her court dates and getting things squared away. She is in the process of filling out the piles of paperwork to secure permanent housing and is preparing to take the test to obtain her driver’s license.
As far as future donations, gift cards are the absolute best.
Empowering cards or notes telling her she is doing a great job, self-help/motivational books
BP gift cards are terrific as she can walk there and get groceries when needed
Uber gift cards help her get where she needs to go as she does not have a vehicle
Gift cards for ice cream, frozen yogurt, groceries, Jewel-Osco, WalMart, Goodwill, restaurants, movies, Girl’s Day Out mani/pedi salon gift card, day passes to Game Works and Lego Land by Woodfield, anything fun that you would enjoy
