Towing assistance

A mother's car is in need of car repair - in order for her to attend treatment, visits with her child, and eventually driving to work. A dealership in Belle Plaine has been able to generously offer free repair. However, the car needs to be towed there for an appointment on Wednesday 5/31 at 10:00am and is not driveable. The dealership does not have staff availability to tow the car. If a a donor can cover the tow fee or there is someone with ability to tow the car for the family from Shakopee to Belle Plaine, it would be much appreciated.

Storage Unit for a mom in Treatment

I am working with a mom who has been in treatment and will be in treatment for several more months. This mom currently has most of her belongings at a local storage unit company. This company has worked with us in the past to make sure that the mom could utilize this service, and they have taken off some of the cost for the overdue fees. The storage unit costs $119/month. The mom currently has $300 overdue and needs at least two more months while we work with her on finding additional ways to meet this need. The total need would be $600. The storage company would sell her items in early July if she is not able to cover the costs. Thank you in advance!

This dad is working full time but the continued cost of his son's care is inhibiting him from getting ahead of his bills.

Gift Cards and birthday request

We are currently working with a young girl who will be a teenager soon! The family has had a lot of hardships and trauma over the years and providing some birthday gifts would make her whole day. She loves to read (Barnes and Noble gift card), draw/color/journal, and could use a good fuzzy blanket, I will also add that she absolutely loves animals and would greatly benefit from equine therapy at Make Strides in Jordan. Purchases of these items or Gift cards for any of these services would be greatly appreciated.

Dumpster or Bagster needed.

I am currently working with a single mom who has inherited a home from her mother who passed away. This home was neglected which resulted in quite a bit of things that need to be thrown out. This has also caused Mom to be very overwhelmed and very anxious and shut down. Getting a dumpster will help alleviate stress and anxiety as well as ensure the home returns to a more comfortable state for living. We are currently looking for a 10-yard dumpster and the cost with taxes would be $516.00. Thank you for considering.
