Things of My Very Own

Things of My Very Own, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that provides crisis intervention services and programs to children in emergency situations, specifically, those who have experienced extensive abuse or neglect.

EMERGENCY CASE

We have an emergency case involving a family of four who lost everything in a fire. Mom was initially brought to Albany Med but had to be transported to Syracuse due to the nature of her injuries. It is imperative that these children are provided with assistance immediately considering the nature of the emergency.

Family #00112022

10-year-old girl
Shirts: 10/12 girls
Pants: 12 girls
Pajamas: 12 girls
Coat: 12 girls
Undergarments: 12 girls
Shoes: 3.5y

11-year-old girl
Shirts: 16/18 girls
Pants: 18 girls
Pajamas: 18 girls
Coat: 18 girls
Undergarments: 18 girls
Shoes:5y

Notes: The children will need two twin-sized mattresses, twin-size bedding, clothing, coats, sneakers, winter boots, socks, undergarments and new toys. The girls love arts, crafts, puzzles, slime and enjoy artificial nail kits. The family could benefit from microwavable meals as they are currently displaced. Please click here to donate now thingsofmyveryown.org/donate/. Help these children and their mom to start over again, as Mom works to heal her family and herself from this trauma.

Things of My Very Own has the ability to purchase many needed items, especially clothing, for a fraction of retail prices. For this reason monetary donations go further. If you have items on-hand, you may bring them to the crisis intervention center located at 249 Green Street in Schenectady on any Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Saturday between 9am-noon. We are out in the community working with children and families in crisis at other times. Be sure to label bags for these two little girls with Family #00112022.
