Food, materiel aid, and Christmas for the family

Postby Aaple » Sun May 01, 2016 9:21 am

My request is a bit different than usual. At the end of July, I was diagnosed with a non-functioning kidney, and had removal surgery on October 16. Since that time, I have been on medical leave from my work without any income at all. I plan to return to work at the first of the year, but in the meantime have no money for Christmas. What is unusual about this request is that I buy gifts for my pets since I have no children. The pets are very low on food, and are in danger of running out. They also like toys. I have 1 dog, and 2 cats. I could also use some monetary funds to buy household supplies, and food for myself. Any assistance in this matter would be appreciated. Thank you very much, god bless, and Merry Christmas.

Hello,
I have a brother who lives in Akron. He is a trucker who works hard to take care of his family. However, his wife was very ill for quite some time recently and he had to stop working to care for her. They have a 17 year old son and have also been taking care of their 6 year old grandson whose father was incarcerated until recently.
My brother just returned to work a couple of days ago and will have no funds for Christmas. I have been helping as much as I can but as a single parent raising kids after my husband of 22 years abandoned the family 6 months ago, it has been difficult. God has been faithful in keeping our hopes up despite the circumstances.
Please help them if you are able. They have been a blessing to me and my family and many others in times of need. I am so heartbroken at the thought of them having no meal or gifts for Christmas. They live in Akron. Thanks and God bless.

Hello,
I live in an apartment complex and I pay all my bills.
I do have help with the city discount billing and a food pantry.
But still pay like 70% of it right now. I am broke.
Because I paid out 50.99 and have no money left for my medications or other food.
I need help...I'm on Energy assistance but I can't get on it again until
Next November. If you can send me some help or how to get more help for Christmas.
I also need other food and stuff So I don't have to pay out more I would like it.

We can show you how to get help at Christmas. But we do not run the programs ourselves. Generally this is the most highly offered program throughout the year. Thousands of groups offer toys, meals, etc. They occur in all parts of the country and in all cities and towns. So there is bound to be some free Christmas toys and more available in your town. Look for them here. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... money.html

I live and own a home in Albemarle, NC. My husband died December 30, 2015. I am disabled and only get half of my husband's Social Security Benefits. His life insurance is gone and I don't make enough money to pay the bills, buy food, pay for Christmas presents, and basically live. My husband's Social Security Benefit is only $407 a month and My Disability is $751. If you help in any way, I would appreciate it. Begging to hear from you.

I am a mother of 3, and step mom. My children are 16 year old girl, 5 year old boy, 3 year old boy and 1 year old girl. My children's' dad works but by the time we get done paying bills there is nothing left to spend on Christmas, a holiday food basket or birthdays. I or my husband do not have coats, and he works in a plant that is very cold during the winter. My 1 year old is wearing clothes that she had when she was first born. (0-3 months, nothing bigger than 9 months) my 3 year old son needs new shoes. His shoes are a size 9.5 toddler, and he is complaining of his toes hurting. My 5 year old is 48" tall and needs bigger clothes. He’s so tall that he needs size 7-8 in clothes (except underwear). My husband is 6'5, 230 lbs. and his clothes are very expensive to buy. He needs new shoes (13) for work, jeans and shirts and other material goods. I don't really need anything but food. Just a happy family.

Since there are multiple needs, look into the free stuff and programs we have listed. they cover clothes, material items, food, and much more for you and your 3 children.
