Urban Matter adopted a family for the holidays and we need your help! Bring an item for the family (it doesn't need to be wrapped) into the shop and we'll give you 10% off your purchases that day. Giving feels good, doesn't it?
Let's meet our Christmas family: The family of 6 consists of a 40 yr old disabled single mother and her 5 children. Two of the children suffer from learning disabilities and attend special classes. The mom is unable to work due to her disability and thus has no means to provide for her children during the holidays. Any income she has goes directly to pay her rent and the families basic utilities.
Mom is very appreciative of any help we can all give!
The families wish list is as follows:
T: 40 year old mom
T's household needs: Clothing Shoes Food Washer / Dryer unit
Hygiene products and toiletries: body wash, soap, toothpaste, mouthwash, etc.
Food assistance from Schnucks, Shop n Save & Aldi's.
Utility assistance: if you would like to make a donation towards the family's bills, we recommend you use the online donation system found at www.wumcrc.com. Funds will be made available immediately to families whose utilities are already disconnected or on the verge of disconnection.
