It is hard for me to ask for help. I am a disabled mother. I have not been able to buy my 16 yr. old new clothes in 2 yrs. All her clothes have been given to her by friends. Now her dresser is falling apart. And we are low on food. I just do not have the funds for all these things. I am not picky neither is my daughter.
