New sneakers and a soccer ball for 3 boys

Nido de Esperanza | New york, NY
Our extended family was hit hard by COVID, suffering several losses. Then my cousin gave birth to her baby, only to lose him a few days later. After months of so much loss and sadness, we had some joy when we welcomed our baby daughter into the world at the end of October. Our daughter adds to our family, which includes 3 boys from my husband's previous marriage (6, 8, and 11 years old). Our unemployment checks have only covered the basics. My husband has finally returned to work, but I will be staying home to care for our 4 children, as the boys all have remote learning. I would love to cook a special holiday meal for our family, like we have done in the past, and to have Christmas stockings with some gifts for each kid. It would help us feel hopeful. If you can help, we would welcome some groceries to bake a cake and Christmas cookies, along with a ham and rice. All 3 boys love soccer and would love new sneakers and a soccer ball. They would also love anything from Star Wars.
