as much as I am always behind. I am also behind in my mortgage. I have legal trouble with my 9-year-old son, that
is an expense. You people save the day with the food. I just cannot put food on the table for Thanksgiving. Please
pray for us.”
“I am a grandmother trying to raise my grandchildren. These 5 children did not ask to come here. The situation is
very bad with their parents. They fight all the time. I am in church on my knees that the Lord would help. This

“I am a single mother of two wonderful children and am unable to provide them with Thanksgiving or Christmas
this year. My heart is breaking for them at this difficult time in our lives. Recently I lost my job, and cannot make
ends meet. I am continuously looking for a job, but with the holidays just around the corner, I am scared. Please
help me to find the resources I need to make the holidays a happy time for them. My daughter Tristan is 8 years
old, and my son Samuel is 7 years old. I will do anything to see their faces light up throughout the holidays. If you
have a job I can do, I will do whatever it takes. May you guys be blessed.
I am a 65-year-old male. My wife and I have not had any food for a couple of
days. You see, by the time my Social Security check comes, I am already broke.
We get $731.00 a month to pay rent, light bill, clothing and food. I used to be
able to get some handyman work, but not anymore. No one understands this!!
I am a mother of five children. I lost my job since last year and I have not been
able to find work as yet. Some months are harder than some. The State has
granted me food stamps for food. Not some items like toilet paper, clothing and
medicine. I am sick, my kids are sick. I get some help sometimes from agencies
but not all the time. I have a handicapped 2-year-old child.
I am a mother of two children, a 10-year-old and an 18-month-old girl that
was born weighing one and one-half pounds. She is still being monitored by the
hospital. So I can not work. My husband walks way after she was born. My
mother helps when she can. I just need to have a meal for Thanksgiving. My
daughter is helping me to adjust many days and nights.
