Telling daycare I can't afford donations and goodie bags

I am broke and I barely make it to the 24 each month and we get paid between the 2 and 5. I pay $ 220 per week at our daycare and another 50 every Tuesday to a nanny as I work 5 evening hours. With the Holidays daycare will start asking for goodies. Right now it's a pumpkin but then it will be goodie bags etc etc. I feel I need to be consistent to get out of debt. Shall I tell her we can't afford it?

I'm a little confused.
The daycare wants you to donate stuff to them?


I work at a daycare and we don't ask for anything.

Sounds like it's for special occasions or parties.

Yes she does things like this quite often. We have been going since October last year. Sometimes she wants a white t shirt for them to paint , other times cleaning supplies for her or sanitizer , now a pumpkin
