Urgent help needed! 
15th-Dec-2009 06:41 pm
A friend and BARCC colleague just sent me the following:

Co-worker's apt burned down; mother of 5 kids. Total loss & no renters insurance. Kids have no clothes: 4 girls, 1 boy. Boy is 2 & takes 2-3t. Girls range from 9mo-9yrs. Contact me if you're able to donate clothes!

Comment here and I'll help coordinate. Thanks for any help you can provide! I'll update as I get more info.

Does the Salvation Army donate clothing to causes like this one? I would suggest calling them to see if they do.

Probably not efficient to send clothes from oCal - what gift cards would be useful out there?

SoCal, I mean.

I have a bunch of size 5/6 boys clothes but I bet enough are gender neutral that they can use them We also have spare sweatshirts and maybe some snow boots.

I have 5 or 6 trash (those really big trash bags too!) of clothes in our 'mud room', that I've been figuring out what to do with.

Admittedly, most of them might be a little big, even for the nine year old, but the mother can have any of them, or all of them.

Let me know!

I have a small bag of boys/unisex 3T clothes. And a crate of 3T clothes earmarked for whuffle's little boy; I can ask her if I can pass it this way instead.

I may have some things I can help with, but Im not sure how to get them to her from WA state. When you have contact info include me on the list so I can ship clothing if I can please. Also, the mother: what does she have/need for herself? Might have things there too.

I do have some random girls clothes in sizes baby to 9, but I'm not sure the next time that one of us will be heading down to your area. Is this a next few days thing or will the need continue for a few weeks?

You're on a mutual friend's list, and I saw this; does the mother need any clothes? By a wonderful happenstance, I have family from the Boston area coming to visit for the holidays, and could potentially send things back up with them.

Yes, but I don't know her size; here's more info: http://shadesong.livejournal.com/4025391.html

I'd happily donate via paypal, since that's probably more practical than trying to find and send clothes. Do keep us up to date if we can help...
