Christmas 2014 Help Requests – Families in Need

help families in need christmas

Christmas 2014 help, just as Christmas 2013…2012…and those before, is an ongoing concern again for many families in need.

As the weather turns cooler, the leaves drop to earth’s floor, and night’s dark shade falls heavy on the days, anxiety grows for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and guardians with limited income. They stress over how they will be able to provide a merry Christmas their children deserve.

I know because I have a daughter who has been unemployed since April, 2013…and another daughter whose car decided to quit on her as she was driving down the highway on her way home after a long double shift.

Please go to Families Need Christmas Help 2016 for this year’s requests.


One source in searching for help is the Internet. Perhaps that is how you found Families have begun to contact me with requests for Christmas 2014 help.  Although I am personally unable to provide help, I will post requests for Christmas 2014 assistance in hope that families may find their own ”Christmas Angel.”  In the past, some families have been fortunate in finding their Christmas Angel. But, out of the many, many requests, they represent only a very small percentage.

If you wish to request Christmas 2014 help, leave your information in the comment box below. Your comment will remain private and not show up until I approve it. This is to prevent spammers from overloading my blog. I will contact you via email before I post your request on the appropriate blog page.

Christmas 2014 Help Request

When you write your request with your email, please include your state, county, and nearest large town or city (you do not have to give your town unless you wish to),  number of children, whether boy or girl, their ages, and what they are in need of or their Christmas wishes. Expensive items are not usually granted, so please keep this in mind. Also, would you accept used items or clothes that are in good condition? Christmas Angels may be more receptive to your request if they can recycle items to you that they may have or find at garage sales, flea markets, or consignment shops. Also, keep in mind the ease and cost of delivery.

One more thing, as a family in need asking for Christmas 2014 help, you may be asked to verify your situation, and/or a background check may be made by the potential owner…and in all cases, do not share social security numbers, bank account information, or any other numbers or forms of information that may be used in identity theft.  To start, all interactions will be between the two parties via email and further arrangements will also be between the two parties. If an exchange is person-to-person, do it in a very public place and do not go alone.

The role of is only to post the requests as submitted. First name, last name initial, email address, and location information as given will be included along with the request for needs and wishes. I’ve created a new Help Contact Form you can use for either requesting Christmas 2014 help or inquiring about being an “Angel”.

Requests for Christmas 2014 help might also be found in posts linked from and to this page as Christmas 2014 approaches.

    Hi my name is Yolanda Johnson, I am the PTSA(Parent Teacher Scholar Association)President recently nominated as early as November. I am requesting help for the less fortunate and displaced scholars at George Washington Carver/Bruce Street School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. We have just recently received our approved bylaws and hoped that we were able to have our 501c(3) status before the Christmas holiday. As a result, we were not able to do anything for our scholars.
    We service and advocate for scholars grades k-8 and would like your assistance in making the aforementioned a pleasant holiday. Our location is Newark, NJ and we could be reached at 973.705.3803 or [email protected]. Thank you in advance for your support.

    Warm regards,
    Yolanda Johnson
    PTSA President

    Hi, I have 2 little girls. Casey will be 5 a few days after Christmas and Cheyenne will be 2 on Christmas day. I have always struggled to give them a good birthday and a good Christmas, but with the help of a wonderful church we always had a great time. However, this year due to a divorce, my girls and I have had to move back home with my family, and away from our wonderful support system. I don’t know how I will make this year work.

    Casey who is going to be 5 has Cystic Fibrosis. I really need to find things to keep her active, and healthy. Things I am looking for that I think would benefit her are toys for outdoor play such as a small toddler sized enclosed trampoline, a small slide, and indoor toys that have to do with food. She is a very poor eater and I want to encourage eating as much as possible (play food, or even a child’s cooking toy like an easy bake oven or no bake magic mixer would be great)Casey has also expressed to me her desire for a “robot girl” I imagine she wants some kind of doll, Barbie, etc… that talks =)

    Cheyenne who will be 2 on Christmas day is not to picky. She loves anything and everything. She is a Christmas present herself =) She will play with anything her sister is playing with. a few things I think would capture her interest are toys that have buckles, buttons, and zippers on them. She would also enjoy anything Frozen. She loves that movie =)

    I have done all I can to garage sale and consignment shop ahead of time but these kind of items are not easy to find. I know I cant give them everything. But I just want them to know that through all of the change that has gone on this year that things will be ok.

    We live in Lancaster California which is near Los Angeles.
