There are charitable agencies and organizations who, with the assistance of donations and volunteer support, help make the holidays a little merry for families who are experiencing troubled times. In order to help families in need, the agencies and organizations need to know how many families will be receiving aide in the way of food, holiday meals, and presents for their children. For the holiday gift giving, ages and names of the children are also needed so they can attempt to provide presents that will put a smile on each child’s face.
If you are a family, or single person, in need of holiday assistance please contact your local charities as soon as possible. Ask them if they provide holiday assistance and if so, what are their requirements and deadlines. If you wait too long, you may not be able to sign up. Remember they depend on the kindness of others for donations of food, gifts, and money. In a time when so many people are not as well off as they were in the past, the charities may be receiving less than they had in the past as well.
If you are a family, or single person, who is in a position to help the charities provide holiday assistance, please contact the charities as soon as possible to find out how you can help families in need this year.

To all of you who are seeking help for your family,
I have closed comments. Unfortunately, the few “donors” who responded with offers to help turned out to be deceitful. It breaks my heart to read all the requests for Christmas help and to find that so few are willing to donate. And it makes my blood boil knowing now that there are people who don’t mind adding to your heartbreak by playing a sick joke by offering help and then not responding. I am truly sorry I couldn’t help any of you.
