Requests - Organizations & Individual

Requests are listed by most current at the top. Please consider scrolling to the bottom of the list to fund requests that have been waiting the longest. Thank You! 

All of the requests on this page are from specific individuals, families or organizations. One of the core values of HYH is: only the individuals themselves know what they want or need and that it is critical to take the time to ask them. When you fund a request, you are providing something that not only the individual, family or organization needs but you are also supporting another HYH core value which is: immigrants, migrants and refugees should feel valued, respected and appreciated. Basically, your support is saying, “we love you and the fact that you are here!”

Looking for a unique gift for someone?
Fund a request and we will send him/her a little gift box with a description of the request inside and any personal message you would like us to add.
When you check out just check off the box that it is a gift and leave the address to send it to in the comment section.

Steel Toe Safety Shoe

These shoes are a vitally important purchase because they will help our new arrival work safely. Without these shoes, he will be unable to work every day, which means he will be unable to provide for himself and pay for housing and food. We (Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency) are very lucky to have access to other shoe donations, but unfortunately, none of those shoes will fit this client or be suitable for his workplace.

I moved from Chiapas, Mexico to the US 6 years ago, chasing the American Dream. I left behind my wife and 3 children. It has been very hard for me to be away from my dear ones.

I have been working for a dairy farm since my arrival. I work over 70 hrs a week and I’m always available to take someone else’s shift if they cannot work for any reason. I love helping my peers. All my earnings are committed to my family, including my parents. My wife and my children live with them. Just recently I finished building the kitchen in my house in Mexico. My 3 children are attending school and I’m paying for all that. I also support my mother and my father. I know that I’m here to work and I don’t complain. I am thankful that my family in Chiapas is doing better. They eat well and they have a roof. With the covid-19 breakout the situation has become scary around here. It’s difficult to find stores that are open and with my working schedule, no car and no license it has become hard to buy some essential needs. I would highly appreciate a pair of boots. I need them for my work. Thank you once again for your kindness and God bless you.

Hello, My name is Andrew and I come from Martinez de la Torre in Veracruz, Mexico. I have only been in the Upper Valley for about two years but the treatment I have received from the people of Vermont and New Hampshire has been superior to what I received in my previous location in Michigan. I am a father of three children, two sons and one daughter, but they are all back home in Mexico with my wife.

Moving to the United States has been one of the biggest sacrifices I have made in my lifetime, especially leaving my whole family behind and missing out from some of the prime years of my children. Back in Mexico I worked as a handyman but the level of pay was not enough to sustain my family or provide them with the stability that they deserve. Currently I work an average of 70+ hours at the farm and most of that money I am sending home to pay for my children's education, and for their food and housing. Even though it is hard being without my family, I thank the world everyday for keeping me healthy to continue to take part in this labor that I have grown a great affection towards. I would be eternally thankful if you could help me through your generous funds to have access to one or more of the items I am requesting above. Your gifts are not only a donation, but they make a tremendous difference in giving us the tools and comfort we need to continue to take part in our jobs to the best of our ability. Thank you for your graceful work.

AC Unit

Hello, my name is Charlie and I have been here in the Upper Valley for 7 years. When I left my town in Veracruz, Mexico, my mother fell sick and I promised to myself that I would take care of her as well as she took care of me and my siblings because my dad left her when I was just a kid. She was a domestic employee always helping others in their homes.

I am the oldest and I would take care of my little brothers (3). My mother has had to stop working so since I arrived here I have become the only financial provider for my family. I send her all my earnings and thanks to this my brothers go to school. I am also in the process of building a house for them. I did not have the chance to finish elementary school because I had to help my mother. I work an average of 74 hours a week. I don’t complain about it because this is what I’m here for, to work to support my family. My mother’s health has improved a lot and I feel that I’m doing the right thing for the family. I was hoping that someone could help me with an air conditioner unit. The house where I live on the farm gets really hot during the summer. Thank you for being so generous.

AC Unit

My nickname here at the dairy farm community is “El niño”, kid, because I arrived here to Vermont after my 17th birthday. I have only been in Vermont for three months and though I have felt nostalgic being away from home, the farm community has been very welcoming. I come from a remote community in the highlands of Chiapas State of Southern Mexico, in the border with Guatemala.

At home, I lived with my mother and my 2 younger brothers. We are very much uncommunicated because they live by the mountains and there’s no internet reception in my town. So far the weather hasn’t treated me badly yet I have heard that Vermont winters are very long and cold. The farmworkers here have been so nice to me, they have supported me in many ways. I have learnt a lot about the dairy farm and the cows. I like it a lot and all the money I make, I’m sending it to my mother to support her with my brothers. I work 75 hrs a week and the community here has become my family. Being only seventeen I have had to adapt and mature at an early age but I know that this is an investment I am making for the betterment of myself and my family. Cooking for me is a way of decompressing, and also a therapy to distract myself from our hard labor at the farm. One of my house mates is teaching me how to make cheese. I would also appreciate it if you can contribute with Rennet tablets so I can make my own cheese to share with my housemates. I would also very much appreciate it if you can support me with a manual corn mill to grind corn in order to make tortillas. I miss my mother’s handmade tortillas and I would love to make them for the dairy farm community. Finally I would also appreciate receiving an AC unit so that I can have for the rest of the summer and the summers that await me.

Television & Antenna

As new arrivals to the United States, this client and her family are currently learning English. A television would allow the client to learn English and stay up-to-date on what is going on in Charlotte, which is a matter of safety and community integration. This is even more pressing since ESL classes can not currently take place in person, due to Coronavirus.

Additionally, this client is elderly and can not work, so a television would give her something to do and allow her to connect to her new home. In order for the clients to watch television and gain all of the benefits associated with this, they will need a television antenna. As they are not yet able to afford cable, the antenna is necessary for the television to work.
