Local family needs community help

April 14, 2022

9B Family Foundation, a Bonners Ferry preschool, childcare and family resource center, has a family facing challenging times and needing the community's help. The mother gave birth to twins around 18 weeks early, with one in the neonatal intensive care unit at Kootenai Health, the other in a Spokane NICU. Mom is staying in Coeur d'Alene and commuting between hospitals to be with her babies, who are trying to grow big enough to come home, hopefully in 18 weeks around the date they were expected in June.

Grandma is keeping the home fires burning, taking care of the families other three children, but they need help with firewood, their sole source of heat, and grandma is stretched pretty thin and could use help with meals, help around the house and all the prayers the community can send up.

Those who'd like to help can stop by 9B Family Foundation, 7142 Second Street, call (208) 610-6507 or message Charli Turner on Facebook.
