  • Many local churches, at least around here, offer free clothing & emergency food for those in need. You could also check at the local Goodwill for cheap, but decent clothes or, since you have computer access, check your local website and see if there is anybody who is giving away boy's clothes in the sizes you need. You can also post "wanted" on the Freecycle sites, but they sometimes require that you post an "offer" first.

  • Wow hun, I'm really sorry to hear all this. I know some of the local Church's help out. They have clothes, food, even toys for the kids. Call them and tell them your story maybe they can help you out. Last year around Christmas my sister called the church and she was able to sign up for Christmas program, They gave both of her girls two outfits, shoes, candy, and two toys each. They even gave her the gift tag so if they didn't like it they would get something else. There are so many programs and Church's that would help you. Call around. I hope some of this helps. Good Luck!
