Do you have Christmas presents past a certain date?

Post by Popen » Sat Nov 05, 2016 8:38 am

I have a 12 year old son that I need help buying Christmas prsents for on Christmas. His dads just got out of jail yesterday and has been in there for 4 months. I was hurt at the beginning of this month and it has prevented me from working. I wasn't aware if I could get any help at this point. We haven't gotten him anything at all yet & it looks like most organizations don't help past a certain date. I'm desperate.

In general, no. Any holiday programs, whether for toys or free meals, have deadlines. But there can be free Christmas gifts and toys if you register on time. Usually in September or so.
Also, if you were abused, try a DV shelter for your kids Christmas needs. You may get additional support from this type of groups.

I don't know HOW I thought I was going to make Christmas happen. I usually can scrimp and borrow from peter to pay Paul, but we had car trouble on THREE cars in the last 6 weeks (am borrowing a car right now), and everything is about to fall apart. Have you any ideas with this late of notice on the dates?

Well, it is still early October. So you should be able to still get help. Yes, that is what most people have issues with..unexpected bills, repairs, etc. that impact their ability to buy Christmas presents. So in that case, look here for supplies. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... dakot.html
