Buy a School Supply for Single-Parent Families, Pt. 3!

Beyond Baby Mamas’ 2013 Online School Supply Drive continues! We’ve already funded 11 families — and more are gradually contacting us via email with their school- or teacher-given supply lists.

This is our latest group of families. Please check back frequently, as we will be updating our blog to reflect progress and to notify donors/sponsors when each family’s list is fully funded.

Family #17 was fully funded before we could even update our blog.

Family #18: A single mother of four children, two sons, 15 and 8, and two daughters​, 12 and 7, in California needs lots of help with her children’s considerable school supply needs. From compass and protractor sets to crayons and backpacks, they’ve got a lot left to do. Please help them.

Family #19: A single mother of three small children, aged 9, 7, and 6. Two girls and one boy, in Bellflower, CA.

Family #12: This list is for a single mother of three daughters in Anniston, Alabama. She has a 15-year-old and 12-year-old twins. “Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated,” she wrote. “Thank you so much!” UPDATE: Family #12 is FULLY FUNDED!

Family #13: This list is for a single mom of one son in Richmond, VA. He’ll be starting 2nd grade this fall. “I would appreciate any help,” she wrote. UPDATE: Family #13 is FULLY FUNDED!

Family #14: This single mother of three in Baltimore, MD needs help with supplies for her two daughters and her son. UPDATE: Family #14 is CLOSED AND (MOSTLY) FUNDED*! (Due to technical shipping issues, we couldn’t *fully* fund this list, but we came quite close!)

Family #15: A single mother of one son, starting third grade wrote us: “If possible my son needs color pencils, crayons, bag back, & notebook paper. Pencils, scissors. Thanks for whatever help you can supply as we are currently homeless.” (We fleshed out her list a bit, by adding a three-ring binder, pencil sharpener, glue sticks, erasers, and spiral notebooks.) UPDATE: Family #15 is FULLY FUNDED!

Family #16: This list is for a single mother of one child, starting fifth grade this fall, in Copiague, NY. UPDATE: Family #16 is FULLY FUNDED!

We have one more family lists pending; we’re waiting for additional information before posting. Please check this link frequently, as we’ll continuously update.
