Just a few of the things needed: diapers, wipes, formula, non-perishables, paper goods, water, blankets/pillows, shampoo, soap, towels, razors, toothbrushes, combs/brushes, toothpaste, deodorant, batteries, flashlights and first aid kits.
Close to home - my 2 oldest have set up donation areas in both of their classrooms (thanks to the help of their wonderful teachers), we are receiving donations in our home from friends and neighbors and several friends at church are getting involved as well.

Would you like to help? If you are in St. Louis, get in touch with me and I'll get you some more specific information where you can make a donation. If you are outside the St. Louis area, look for somewhere local to make donations. Are you too far away? You can always make donations to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief.
Just imagine having to go through this. Where do you get food for your children? How do you get a change of clothes to replace the ones you've been wearing for the past 3 days? What happens when you run out of formula or diapers for your infant/toddler? How nice would it be to have a clean toothbrush? All these little things that we all take for granted on a daily basis.
