I spent more and more time in the hospital until I was out of it in January. I also needed a heart surgery procedure in November. I hated that my kids would suffer from my medical problems, and I hated that they would not have a Christmas.
Christmas Come True allowed my children to have a Christmas filled with joy and no worries, they had presents like their friends, and we were just a normal happy family for the holiday. The love and support of complete strangers to make sure my family had a Christmas was HUMBLING. I only hope to be able to give back to the community that the way it has given to me and my children.
Thank you for your compassion; you are truly a blessing to my family and all the families you help.
A family whose life was changed.
A family that found the will to keep going.
I can’t begin to tell you how much Christmas Come True helped my family. Last Christmas I was the only one working when I lost my job three weeks before Christmas; I couldn’t believe it. Then Christmas Come True helped.
My 9-year-old didn’t have a bike, and I had to take hers off layaway because I lost my job. The bike must have 1000 miles on it right now. Without y’all, this would never have happened. She received an art table and clothes too, all the correct sizes. Now everyone needs to know my daughter still believes in Santa.
The dinner was fantastic too. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. God bless.
A family who is thankful.
A family that couldn’t have been happier.
My children received bikes, toys, clothes, and stocking stuffers. We had turkey, with sides, pie, and cookies. My children were so excited, and I enjoyed watching them unwrap all the gifts.
I am a single mother of three girls who are 10, 6, and 4. I do not have help with them and randomly receive child support. It is extremely difficult to pay rent, bills, daycare, insurance, and car payments and provide a decent Christmas for my children. We lost so many belongings and were misplaced by hurricane Irma’s flooding, so 2018 was the first Christmas we spent in our own place since the hurricane. 2018’s presents would not have been possible without your help. God bless all of you.
