The Story

The Onstott family's trailer burned down yesterday. Fortunately, everyone is safe and the 100% irreplaceable items were saved, but they have lost all their clothes, furnishings, and housewares. 

Please donate so that this family of 8 can get back on their feet and on with their lives.

Big thanks to everyone who has donated!

People have been generous in filling the Onstotts' needs, so here's an updated wish list:

* curtains
* flatware
* pots & pans (pref. stainless steel, but they aren't going to be picky)
* school supplies (not much, but Sabra do homeschool Marie year-round pretty much)
* books; a fire hose went in through the window where the book case was, and there was heavy smoke damage there as well (kids and I read mostly sci-fi/fantasy; anything used is great -- adult level or stuff along the lines of Dork Diaries for Esther and super simple beginner books for Marie)
* stuffed puppies, kitties, and bunnies (just a few)
* yarn (several people have said they *can* send this; I checked what I took out of the trailer yesterday & it is indeed smoky )
* cloth diapers (probably definitely a need at this point, since these were in a box on top of the box that had the yarn)

We've had several offers of clothes and I think everyone but Lewis and maybe Erik are well taken care of out of that. And even they might be. Duncan definitely is, and almost certainly Doug, Marie, and me.

Per Sabra, here is what they need as of now:

  • queen sized bedding
  • twin sized bedding
  • (we'll need beds too, but I am going to contact Catholic charities for help there)
  • curtains
  • flatware 
  • plates
  • pots & pans (pref. stainless steel, but I'm not going to be picky)
  • school supplies (not much, but I do homeschool Marie year-round pretty much)
  • French press or percolator
  • slow cooker
  • baking stuff--cookie sheets, baking dishes, etc --I'm not confident enough to take anything from the kitchen since that was exactly where the fire was
  • books; a fire hose went in through the window where the book case was, and there was heavy smoke damage there as well
  • stuffed puppies, kitties, and bunnies (just a few)

I MIGHT need:

  • yarn
  • cloth diapers (flats, prefolds, covers, pockets, whatever you might have)
  • random baby toys (most of his stuff was in my room, which took the brunt of things)

Clothing sizes:

  • Erik: bottoms are size 36; tops size L
  • Sabra: size 22/3X bottoms, 3X tops (I don't wanna be picky, but please no button downs as they don't close properly over my chest); bra is 42K/HH (HH is British)
  • Bobbie: bottoms anywhere from a 4 to an 8; mostly small tops, but she can wear a few mediums too; she's femme (bra size is 34D)
  • Lewis: men's M in loose shorts and tops; juniors women's 13 pants
  • Esther: girls' 10/12 bottoms, 8/10/12 tops, kids' L; she would really like dresses
  • Marie: girls' 6 NOT slim fit (because she's got a booty), girls' 4/6 tops, girls' S dresses
  • Doug: boys' 3T bottoms; girls' 4 bottoms (these actually fit him better); boys' 4 bottoms ONLY if they have adjustable waistband; 3T to 5T tops work fine
  • Duncan: 18 or 24 months; 12M tops if they're big

Goodwill gift cards would be welcome since there is one very close to me.

If you want to send PayPal (and you certainly don't have to), my PP addy is [email protected]

If you want to mail something, my mailing address is actually the same because we have everything sent to my mom's trailer anyway:

6725 Walzem #34
San Antonio, TX 78239

Thanks for the well wishes and offers of help. Love all of you.
