Last Friday March 5, 2021 my son and I are homeless due to another tenant in our apartment building having a fire. Now, our stuff is damaged ny smoke. I am trying to get what I can but not over do it as we are homeless and living with a friend til I find another apartment. If anyone can help us with cash or donations for diapers, food, and some basic clothing and to help me get bus fare so I can start handling business. If I have left over donation money I want to get my some new toys.

I have left a message at the phone number. I can be reached at 2025539348. I am staying right now in a hotel. Our time at the hotel expires tomorrow and alot of my funds went to my son for his medicine after he came out the hospital from smoke inhalation. He had to be on a breathing machine. He is only 1 year n 6 months. He coming along well and is happy. Right now, I am trying to get money to keep food, shelter, and essentials for us. 
I had to quit my job too due to all this and it's been alot btwn dealing with this and being a single mother as well. Thank you
