What can I do?

I get WIC and I lost my folder. I called wic and they replaced the folder but not the vouchers. My child has 1 can of formula till my next appointment on the 18th. I don't have any money right now. We are living paycheck to paycheck. Does anyone know where I can go or anything to get some help? If it was regular checks for like milk, eggs etc I wouldn't mind but I need to feed my child. Thanks.

  • Did you tell that to the counselors?? Do you have family or friends you could call and ask? Anything you could pawn, donate plasma?

  • You can also check your local foodbank or ask at churches in your area some will help out.

  • you can even ask your childs dr if they have any samples or call the hospital in your area. I really hate that you are having a rough time.

  • A pediatrician's office likely has formula samples they can give you. Food shelves are also a great idea. There are also offices/organizations that offer help to mothers and babies in need. In my city it is called "Birth Right", and I know they give away all kinds of things out. You may find some good resources in the phone book. I will pray for you and your child. God Bless You!
