Letter # 2224 Family trying to recover from floods of 2019

My name is Valerie and I live in MONTE RIO.

I am writing to you today because my family has a problem. We were hit by winter flood 2019 as we live in lower Russian River area. We currently have been out of house since end of Feb until now due to everything below ceiling including appliances, cabinets, windows, etc got destroyed by the flood. We have a lack of income due to expenses relying on one person income plus govt assistance.

We are wishing that Secret Santa can help us out by granting this wish. Son wants Nike basketball shoes men size 12, but I cant afford to buy brands. He could use a proper warm jacket, but hes very picky-he prefer hoodies. maybe insulated hoodie? dark blue or so.
We could use warm bedding set especially those mattress pad/covers to protect mattresses. dog beds. controllers for ps3/ps4. spatulas. rags/towels. trash can with lid (we have dogs and sometimes they sniff into places they shouldn't). My son also needs above ankle/mid calf winter/rain footwear (men size 12) as we live in lower russian river area.

If we were able to get this help from Secret Santa it would help. It would help us out a lot as there's so much details I have to take care to ensure proper living ie house down to studs and to hire construction is not cheap. windows alone including labor costs 9k, we have to put in new flooring including subfloor, we had to buy used appliances off craigslist/fb marketplace (gotta stay within budget available) so realistically at this time gifts is not a priority or a necessity for our budgets to go towards as house is the real need we have and thats been our priority. H_House hopefully will be ready by the end of the year so I'm sure there will be more hiccups to deal with and what not before house is all completed. Its tough being a single disabled mom being one income to support the family and to meet needs is not super easy, but I make it work always and I try my best reagrdless. We live in lower russian river area and it tend to get cold out here during certian times of the day and year so warm beddings would lessen the heating bill needed and dog beds would be ncie as we lost them to the flood.

Thank you very much and I wish you the best for the holiday season.
