We wanted to show our appreciation to the employees of our local Zallie’s Shoprite for all the sacrifice they’ve made in the past few weeks. While many are buying lunches for healthcare workers, police, fire fighters etc. we didn’t want to forget the other frontliners, the people running our local supermarkets. So today, we shine a light on all the employees of Zallie Shoprites in & around South Jersey region. Thank you for all you do!
Here’s the request for help we got:
Dear Bianca’s Kids,
My family and I could use the help ️ my son Logan (who’s 4th birthday is tomorrow ) has had two open heart surgeries and is on fast track for his next one. I am still working, longer hours than usual, husband has reduced hours and my sons hospital bills are piling up. Because my son is immunosuppressed my husband and I are having to miss work and “decide” who “gets to go to work” that day so the other will stay home with our son. Because of this, so many bills are being put on the back burner. Recently we were told by my sons cardiologist that he should not go near any child or non immediate family member as his heart is working extra hard already. Obviously this puts extra strain on my husband and I because not only are we extremely worried about my son and his upcoming heart surgery but we ourselves have to take extra precaution, but yet need to work to bring in an income to pay the bills to take care of our family. This vicious cycle is spiraling many down, but anything would help our family right now. Thank you ️
We can’t imagine how much harder this pandemic and all it involves is on families like yours. Subsequently, we are granting your request for help with a check for $300. We hope it takes some pressure off you abs your husband in the next couple weeks.
Here’s the wish we received via our website at Biancaskids.org:
My name is Samantha. I am a single mom to 3 beautiful little girls. Isabella is 8 and she has Niemann Pick Disease Type C, another name for it is children's alzheimers. Piper is 6 and she has autism/adhd and bipolar disorder. Phoebe is 5 and also has autism/adhd and odd. We have hit a very hard time and I am trying my best to do what I can for my girls. I can not work because I stay home and care for Isabella who requires 24/7 care. We have no transportation, I walk everywhere. When isabella is admitted to the hospital frequently I have no way to go and see her while she is in there because I don't even have the money for a city bus. We live in a run down motel because I can't afford the rent, deposit, and utilities on a house. I walk to the grocery store every day because we only have a mini refrigerator in the motel that doesn't hold much. I can only carry 2 or 3 bags of food at a time. I do everything all by myself and I try so hard for my girls.
Thank you for your time.
Samantha, we are granting your wish with a check for $500. This should help you with groceries for the girls for a few weeks. We hope this small blessing will relieve you of a little stress at this time.

**ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL FAMILY EFFECTED BY COVID-19 GETS MUCH NEEDED HELP FROM BIANCA'S KIDS. MEET THE TYPETANARS**
In our effort to help as many families as we can during these uncertain times, we are blessing families with money for bills and/or groceries to help them get by. Accordingly, we received a request for help from Emily. Emily and her husband are the proud parents of their special needs son Henry. Emily advised that Henry just got a trach and she's been his full time caregiver since he was born. Emily also informed us that her husband just got laid off due to Covid-19 and they aren’t so sure his factory will survive after Corona is over. Emily said money was beyond tight before this layoff happened and that any little bit helps.
That being said, we are helping Emily & her loving family with a check for $300.00 to use for bills and/or groceries (wherever needed). Emily was in tears and beyond happy for the blessing and we couldn't be happier to do it for her.
If you know a family struggling due to Covid-19, please tag them on our page and have them follow us for upcoming posts on how they can win some help from Bianca's Kids.
Please share this post to spread the word.

Dear Bianca's Kids,
Hi, my name is Casey I have a 5 year old son named Atticus with a rare genetic lung disease called PCD. It's a lot like cystic fibrosis. We have been in quarantine for 3 weeks now and I haven't been able to work during this time. We are fighting unemployment and my husband is a volunteer firefighter for our town and has been very busy and was laid off from his job.
We have $5 left in our bank account and it's been really hard. We have to use instacart to get groceries and take the chance when we have to pick up his countless medications. Im not worried about myself just my son. I want to make sure he continues to stay healthy and safe but to also make sure he has food.
Thank you for reading this

***Mother of precious little boy whose story of unemployment due to Covid-19 was featured on CNN gets a little blessing from Bianca's Kids.***
Opal Foster is the loving mother of an adorable little boy named Jeremiah who has Down Syndrome. She was featured in a story on CNN this week that some of our board members saw & were touched by.
Opal is a graphic designer who lost her job 2 weeks ago due to Covid-19. Like a million other Americans, Opal is waiting on unemployment checks which are delayed due to the number of people filing for benefits. In the meantime, there is no income but bills still need to be paid and Jeremiah needs to be fed.
Our focus right now is not to grant lavish wishes to help people like Opal pack their fridges or pay a bill or two. To that end, we are sending Opal $300 to help her with groceries this month.
Stay strong Opal! We WILL get through this together,
