A shopping trip for Ariah to be ready for cold temperatures

Posted Sep 19, 2023
Ariah recently moved into a new foster home and does not have any winter clothing. The seasons are changing quickly, and she hopes to get ahead of the weather and stock up on winter clothes that fit her well. She is hoping to get two jackets, a few sweaters, several long-sleeved shirts, thick socks, a couple of winter shoes, and warm pants.

Ariah is 15 years old and lives in NM

Ariah came into care several years ago and has not let it slow her down. She is academically driven and will not settle for anything less than her best. Ariah is very fond of books, particularly the Harry Potter series, and spends much of her time learning something new through books. She's a self-proclaimed "nerd." Ariah also enjoys spending time outdoors, including walking, camping, observing nature, and biking. Additionally, Ariah is excited about going to college but is often told that foster care kids "don't even graduate high school," and she is using this as her driving force to excel in school.
