to a local church event this morning. They are giving free hair cuts, health screenings, backpacks and school supplies, food, furniture, clothes, and baby stuff. I am embarrassed to have to go and I'm hoping I don't see anyone I know. I am only picking up the things we NEED (haircuts, backpacks, shirts for dd, few items for oldest ds (ds2 is set on everything bc of hand-me-downs), and hopefully a pair of shoes for all. I feel really bad having to get stuff for free so I'm going to talk with someone from the church about bringing whatever cloths I have that my children have out grown back to the church next week so that hopefully I can help some other parent that may be in need. 


The bookbags and school supplies were gone in the first 30 minutes so I waited in line to put our names on a list incase there are more donations. Waited in line for 3 hours for haircuts and I noticed when we got home that oldest ds hair is longer on one side than the other so I will have to go pay to get it fixed. :/ oh well.

You are doing what you have to, no shame in that mama. At least you are taking care of their needs. I hope things get better for you.

Dont be embarrassed for getting what your children need. I hate when I see parents whose children suffer because they were too damn lazy or proud to take a donation every now and then. Hold your head up you are doing your job right.

You must live in North Carolina, I heard about this on the news.

I think it's great.

It sucks, but work on bettering your situation. You did know this day would be coming at tax time though....

I think that sounds great. You shouldn't be embarrassed. Sometimes people need help.
