The following Illinois families have requested assistance for the holiday season. If you are searching for a family to help in Illinois, consider these families in need. If you are interested in helping one of these families, just leave a note below – it will not be made public but will be sent to my email. I will contact you and then the family if you choose to offer them assistance (do not send money). With permission from both parties, I will exchange your emails. From that point on, I am not responsible for any outcome that may result since I cannot vouch for either family. I do suggest you ask for verification and do a google search with their full name and address. I will add that the few matches that were made have had positive results, because donors were careful in making their choices. Thank you from everyone for your consideration!

|From Liv (12/2010)||This is beyond hard to do as much as it is to let my pride down and ask for sincere help. My partner and I are having a very…very hard time gathering needed funds to supply our children with gifts this year. One parent is working and I however am not. I’m a stay at home mother and have had my share of thoughts in how I will explain Christmas this year to my children. Im not asking for anything major but just asking for a little assistance as it has been a very rocky road for us all. Anything at this point we will all be extremely grateful for. Thank you all so much for taking the time to acknowledge my statement. I reside in Southern Illinois.|
