One of the ways Humble Treasures helps those in need is through Treasure Matching; where community partners reach out to us about specific individuals who need a little extra help. After a referral we share the story with our donors and work together to best serve our Treasure of the Month.
Well, this month we received a referral from Belinda Johnson, a School Social Worker with Atlanta Public Schools. Ms. Johnson told us about Bianca, a single mother of five children who experienced a house fire on October 28th. Thankfully, all six of them got out of the home safely, but they lost almost everything.
Bianca and her children( newborn, 1, 3, 6, and 10) had no choice, but to move in with a friend temporarily. Although, thankful for the roof over their head, space is limited, and so are places to sleep. As a result, she and her children have been sleeping on the floor. In an effort to help, Humble Treasures provided Bianca & her little ones with a queen air mattress & pump, flannel bedding, linens, clothing, shoes, and more.
Humble Treasures couldn't have been connected with Bianca at a better time, and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to gift her the items she and her family needed at this time. Moving forward, Humble Treasures will continue to follow up and provide supportive services to Bianca and her family over the next several months.
Want to offer more help?
Although, Bianca is grateful for the items she received she is still in need of a warm winter coat(S/M), sweaters(S/M), a soft baby carrier, and plastic storage bins. If you can you help by donating these items please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or donate here and we will purchase the items for Bianca.
Thank you in advance, and know that your gift will help Bianca & her littles after such a devastating event.
