New Jersey Families Need Your Help

New Jersey Families Need Your Help

nj families need your helpThe desire for Christmas help is about all New Jersey families in need can think of right now. The economy wasn’t good before Hurricane Sandy hit our shores…and now it is worse. Because of a poor economy, workers have been laid off. Because of Hurricane Sandy, even more workers have been laid off or hours cut. Even the most motivated of parents are having a difficult time finding employment to supplement that which they have lost. If they are fortunate to find a second job, they are losing quality family time with their children.

Here it is, Christmas time and what are parents to do? Parents and even grandparents, friends, and children are reaching out for any help they can possibly find. They are hoping for an angel to reach out to them in response to their Christmas wishes for their young children, grandchildren, and siblings.

Many families who are displaced because of Hurricane Sandy are receiving some Christmas help through community efforts to collect toys and other gifts for the children. But, not everyone qualifies for that help. And, not everyone qualifies for Toys for Tots or the Salvation Army assistance…perhaps they make just a little too much or the children are just a little too old. To top it all, by now deadlines have passed for many charitable organizations’ registration period.

Help a Brick, NJ Family

Today, I received a plea for help from a caring young lady for her boyfriend’s family to help his mother provide Christmas for his two younger siblings. I’ve posted her request below. If you wish to help, please leave a comment which will come to my email. I will contact the young lady and then it will be between you two to make arrangements for gift giving. When I receive more information as to the family’s wants and needs, I will add it to this post.

Hello, my boyfriend and his family are having very hard times this holiday season. His parents just divorced and they are a low income family. His mother works two jobs but still doesn’t even have enough money to pay the bills. My boyfriend (18) and his little brother and sister (14 and 11) won’t be receiving any presents for Christmas this year. My boyfriend is going to Community College and working trying to help his mom support his family, but they can’t seem to make ends meet. I’ve been doing anything I can for them, but there’s only so much I can give. If anyone could help them out it would be greatly appreciated. They’re such a loving and caring family and they deserve to have a good Christmas this year. They live in Brick, NJ…please reach out and help :)   HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

I encourage my New Jersey neighbors to please reach out to this family and others like them during this Christmas season and those that follow.

Looking for NJ Charitable Organizations to Help NanaFinds.com

I’ve been fortunate to have charitable organizations in several other states contact me asking for me to refer “my families” to them so they may be able to help them. The best gift I could receive is to have charitable organizations in my own state to do the same. I know they are out there! I hope in time, we will find each other.
