Wishlist #3 – The Munoz Family

Please meet the Munoz family.

Antonio and Maria have three sons — Yael (age 12), Gael (age 5) and Jaziel (age 9 months).   They are experiencing an unimaginable amount of stress right now as they struggle to make ends meet for their family.

Antonio works as a mechanic, but has seen a dramatic decline in business due to the poor economy.

Maria works the overnight shift at a factory and spends the days caring for her children, volunteering at her sons’ school and attending English classes.

Share Our Spare™ is working with The Common Pantry to collection donations on behalf of Baby Jaziel, Gael and Yael.  In addition to needing items for their three children, Maria and Antonio are two months behind on their rent payment and are facing eviction.

Wishlist #2 – Baby Londynne

We met Sarah, age 24, and her new daughter, Londynne Jade (born July 11) through the Common Pantry.  Sarah is slowly recovering from her c-section surgery while she is adjusting to life as a new, single mom.   Prior to giving birth, Sarah was a waitress at a restaurant which does not offer maternity leave. Her family strongly encouraged adoption and was not very supportive of Sarah’s choice.  Sarah and Londynne are currently staying with a relative, sleeping on a couch.

Sarah is facing some very difficult and uncertain times as she lacks the most basic essentials to provide for her new daughter. We are working in tandem with the Pantry to help Sarah get back on her feet as her needs and Baby Londynne’s needs are plentiful. We are seeking donations of the following items:

*Baby Boppy Nursing Pillow

*Baby Carrier/Wrap

*Bath Products

*Bibs

*Blankets

*Board Books

*Car Seat

*Clothing  – Winter 3-6 months and 6-12 months

*Crib Mobile

*Diapers – size 2 and 3

*Exersaucer or Jumparoo

*First Aid Kit and Thermometer

*Infant Toys

*Lullabye CDs

*Pack ‘N Play Crib and Sheets

*Wipes

A message from Sarah:

“Thank you for thinking of my baby Londynne and I during our hardship. All your help is greatly appreciated in this time of need from us. It is good to know there is still hope out there even at your worst times of desperation. All of your kindness and help is not taken for granted.  Thank you again.”

We are collecting items for Baby Londynne through September 18, 2011.  If you wish to donate any of these items, please contact us.  Thank you!
