Family in need of help with Christmas. I have two children. I was laid off from my job in early November and have been trying to find help ever since then with no luck. The layoff happened at a time when all our local Christmas programs had already closed out and were no longer accepting applications. Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated. My two desperately need winter coats, shoes and winter clothing. We also need assistance with food, so any kind of gift card to someplace like Food Lion or any local grocery store would be a blessing. I have always prided myself on being able to provide for my children, and it is heartbreaking that I will not be able to do so this year. I have been looking for work since the layoff to any place that I think might would hire me. I have always been a hard worker so it is a huge blow to have gone this long not being able to find employment, even temporary holiday employment. If anyone can help or provide me with a resource I can contact in or around the Cary North Carolina area I would be eternally grateful. I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas full of happiness and many blessings and a wonderful New Year.

Can someone please help my kids this Christmas. We live in Georgia. I have 8 kids 1 is a special needs 4 months baby girl. We take gift cards and hand me downs. Thank you and god bless.
I was wondering if you found a family to help yet?
UPDATE: I'm married now. My husband and I just had a baby boy. We are both disabled but the second income helps a little. However I still will not be able to provide a nice Christmas for my daughter 15/13 years old. I would like to thank everyone who has helped me and prayed for me. My children are very understanding but it breaks my heart to know that there will not be a gift to unwrap. The only gift I have is unconditional love. Please continue to keep us in prayer. I have been in/out the hospital and a little backed up in bills.
I really need help I have recently gained custody of 4 teenagers who have never really had a Christmas plus three of my own I get no help from the county so making a meal big enough for the whole household is sometimes very difficult not to mention the household supplies like shampoo laundry soap dish soap stuff like that I'm not looking for a handout just send me in the rite direction
Not sure why my original post was deleted maybe it's the way I worded it. Over this past month I have had 4 extra teenagers move in, two cuz their parents are once again in jail, one because her mother can't put a roof over her head and give her running water who is also a recovering addict, and the other because of physical violence that he does not deserve. I have three children of my own I am struggling to provide for. Christmas programs don't help teenagers and I wish I could somehow give them a Christmas they'll never forget, unfortunately I don't see it happening I'm sorry if I have said something inappropriate but I really could use some idea with this
I'm looking to help a family in need of help for christmas. please tell me a little about your situation as I'm trying to weed out the scammers. Also what city are you from? thanks

I need help DEPERATELY--- Its 12/7/14, When I started thinking about writing this.. I need financial assistance, I have kids and I am a fulltime student who does NOT receive public assistance I just got cut off right before Thanksgiving and with Christmas just around the corner I do NOT have this kind of money at all--- I barely make it month to month and I have called 211 looking for ANY TYPE of ASSISTANCE and to no avail have I found ANYTHING--I'm very STRESSED and do nothing but be depressed and cry, I don't tell my children what is happening right now cause this is an adult worry... UGH... PLEASE SOMEONE.. ANYONE... If you can HELP in anyway: financial or information, I appreciate anything right now... PLEASE I am asking that you contact me to let me know either way if you can assist me. IF you need or want a list of what they would like, I can provide them. My email is INCLUDED HERE so please we are struggling financially we just can't do it my daughter has found a job but has yet to start even trying to help when she can-- I have also started to look but don't know where I will fit it in, but the 2 older ones they both WANT to HELP, I DO UNDERSTAND that the financial situations of our economy is making employment hard to find and get, but we are trying. I used to only get $236 a month from food assistance and my disability goes to both rent and bills so I'm broke even by the time I get what I get each month. I am grateful but I know it is NOT enough-- I really do need the help, I am currently working on my education and hoping that my new year 2015 has something waiting for me to better my life cause I'm jumping in head first at the opportunity to do it. I do appreciate any and all help that I am able to receive.
I'm going to change my future.. I do not want to have this every end of the year to me-- I always say this and darn it what else is there for me to do when I'm working on it.... What am I doing wrong to have this happen to me?? Uuugh-- reeeeally...

I'm in need of a little help, maybe $200 to cover the rest of Christmas for my 2 daughters and a Christmas dinner. I've done all I can as of right now and its not nearly what is actually needed. I have bought 3 things each for them (clothing) and I put their names in for the secret santa the town does. They give them both about 4 presents each, usually hats/mittens, 1 toy, a pair of pants and sometimes a Jacket if needed. Our local food cupboard doesn't help with presents and local churches (1) in town helps only the people who attend their church. I don't need a whole lot, just enough to make it this year. If you can help, I would be very grateful. You don't necessarily have to send cash, you can send a gift card for Walmart, Kmart, or even Toys R Us.. Please Help, Not sure where to turn
Hi I am a disabled grandmother of 6 that all live with me. I get disability and food stamps. But it is not enough to make it the month. I am 3 months behind on rent. My land lord is about to serve me papers to vacate my home. I can't afford Christmas for the children. And 1 of my grandsons birthday is Christmas day. Thank you for reading my story. And may God Bless
We are having a very bad year and I am so worried about Christmas this year.The money we do get is not even enough to pay all of our bills let alone Christmas. I don't know what to do. This is the first time we have ever been in so much trouble financially. I have got rid of all unnecessary bills trying to help but still isn't enough. If anyone knows of how we could get help for Christmas this year Please let me know. I don't want my children to be let down during the Holidays. They are really Good kids. Thank You So Much for All your Help, and taking time to read this. Take Care and God Bless!
