Hi, I’m Shamari, and my brother Kendell and I need your help.

Last year, YOU and your hero neighbors took care of over 200 KIDS for winter in Dubuque and Western Dubuque. 200 is a whole lot of kids, but I know you can do it again! I need YOU! And with this coronavirus stuff going on, my friends need you more than ever.

My brother and I have been working hard from home with Miss Beth & Miss Danielle at St. Mark. We have learned there are kids that don’t have the things they need to keep them warm, but we hatched a plan. This team of Kid Heroes is AWESOME, but it needs YOU! There are multiple ways you can help below.

Will You help my friends?

Want to go shopping for my friends? Here's what you gotta do. 

  1. Fill out the form below by Oct. 23 and St. Mark will pair you with a family. They'll provide you with the first name, gender, age and clothing sizes for one or more kids around Nov. 6.
  2. Purchase warm winter clothing and return it to St. Mark (391 12th Street or 1201 Locust Street) between 9-5 p.m. Monday Nov. 30 through Friday, Dec. 4 .
  3. If you want to purchase anything extra, please only give a book or a family game to play with. (Beth and Danielle’s rules, not ours)
  4. When you bring your gifts to the St. Mark office, please make sure they have your kid’s  name and number on a label on the present. Then the Crew can make sure the gifts get to the right kid. (I know I like to open presents, so please put them in more than one package.)
