YPC has committed to helping make a local military family's Christmas a little brighter!
We will be collecting Christmas gift donations for the family. Parents (Cody and Chloe) are 26 with 2 kids. He was wounded by an IED in 2011 in Afghanistan, and treating his injuries has been expensive. Once he got back stateside he bounced around hotels to afford his treatments at Walter Reed. Soon after, the Fischer House took them in. Now they are back in Columbus trying to get everything back together as a family. Cody is still recovering from his injuries. He is now at Ohio State studying Social Work with hopes to become a Sheriff one day!
The family has recently moved into a home and welcome Home Depot/Lowes gift cards. Always in need of cleaning supplies and laundry detergent (Tide and downy fabric softener).
Cody (Dad) is a 36x30 pant and large shirt.
Chloe (Mom) is a large top. Shoe size 8.
The boys are 6 and 3. They like boy things - legos, sports, action heroes. The 6 year old wears a size 6 in clothes and a 3 in shoes. The 3 year old wears a size 4 and a size 10 in shoes.
