  1. You mention a 3:1 adult/child volunteer ratio. So my husband and daughter, age 17 would need two more adult volunteers to join them?

  2. I am low to no income and on housing, food stamps and fighting for disability funds. I trying to find some help getting my grand kids clothing and toys for chrismas. Can this program help me?
