Grandmother caring for 5 grandchildren in need of school clothing

Requesting: $300

Location: Crestline, CA



I am a parent partner for a Wraparound team with Lutheran Social Services, a non-profit organization. Our client's are children that are at high risk of being removed from the home into a higher level of care. We have a low income grandmother that has been forced to become the legal guardian of her 5 grandchildren, ages ranging from 8 months old to 10 years old, three of which are going to school at the end of August (all boys). On behalf of this grandmother, I am requesting $100 for each child (total $300), to be used toward school clothes, shoes and school backpacks and supplies.

This is the paternal grandmother. The children were take from her son and his wife because they were not properly caring for the children, do to drugs and other issues. The mother is presently getting the help she needs, and the Wrap team is also working with her to insure the children eventually return to a safe and stable home. We (the Wraparound team) are doing everything possible to help keep the children from going into foster care or group home. The kids are good kids, and the older ones are aware of their situation and the possibility of being removed from their grandmother's home.

Our team has assisted grandmother by purchasing other things like food, new car seat and booster seat, safety kitchen gates, electrical safety plugs, and other emergency needs, but our agency has limited funds and we are unable to make further purchase at this time. PS: We can provide you with a tax-deductible thank you letter for your tax purposes.
