Car seat being raffled to help toddler in need

Muskegon local has been organizing a donation drive for a toddler in need. You might remember the child from an earlier story when a mother and daughter broke into a home and took the younger woman's two-year old daughter with them. Now that her father has custody of her, he needs help. The response from the business community has been nothing short of amazing. Initially Muskegon Local contacted All Things Girly, Jammies 2 Jeanz, and Your Plate or Mine to see if they could help. All three businesses jumped at the chance. However the father still has a need for cash to pay for some of the added expenses of caring for a child.
