Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
We did this through an agency one year. When we delivered the stuff, we found out that the "single parent with one child" that I helped out had a Master's degree and was working as an accountant for Dell Computer!!! She made more than we did (hubby & I were both working part time at that time)!!!

Our "Christmas Bureau" help center has no income limits and requires no proof of income. I will NEVER give through that agency again.

This is what I'm afraid of whenever I give. Do you mind telling us the agency?

try this:

[link to family-of-five-need-help.christmas-help.aidpage.com]

if you contact the salvation army they would have leads too, as well as most any church in your area



speaking of salvation army, I was in there the other day and they have those prices hiked so high up! The poor can't even afford it. People donate things thinking they are helping the poor, but the Salvation Army is getting greedy on donations for the poor. I was in there and there was a dresser they had piced 350.00. They had an old stained t shirt for 6.00. You can get a new one at walmart for 5.00 on clearance. There was a frame I liked, priced $6.00, and when I turned it over, the price said 2.00 at walmart. I think this is greedy of them,and I told them so.

I started thinking of a way to help the poor, and also everyone else. I thought about opening up a place big enough to take in donations of cloths, furniture, food, ect. The only difference would be that people could come and get what they need for free, and people could donate their things there, but also get things they may want or need for free as well. We could take in donations for money to pay the bill for the price of the rent for the place, if the whole communities chipped in. If there was extra money, it would be to feed the poor. That way there would be no needy at all, and everyone would have what they really need to be happy.

Faithful
 Quoting: Faithful 557830


You are so right. Some of these thrift stores just get greedy. On donated crap no less. There's usually at least one good thrift store with decent prices in driving distance. You're idea is a good one but I have seen thrift stores try something close and it never works. You can't count on donations to pay the bills month to month or cover other overhead reliably. Thrift stores have to charge something, just out of sheer necessity, but many turn that around into something good. There's a nice local one that uses their proceeds to fund a food bank and Toys for Tots distribution near here.
 Quoting: Tabitha


I used to think that until it was pointed out to me that the reason that the salvation army prices in their shops are expensive is because they need to raise lots of money to support all their various programs, like food for the poor, homeless shelters and they help addicts and the elderly, they have so many programs and running them is not cheap.

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
This is too user 541939. I am a mother to 5 fantastic kids that my husband and myself are having a hard time giving Christmas too due to me being laid off and not being able to find another job. Our car got repoed and we almost lost our house, our kids watch day in and day out as we struggle. They stress just like we do and feel bad to even ask for new shoes after theirs rip. My husband and I are a proud family and do not ask for help but during Christmas we want to see their faces as they see their presents. That is our greatest joy. I am sorry that parent like us have to ask for help once in awhile. Get a heart scrooge if you don't want to help families in need then don't but don't hate the people that do have hearts. As for the people that are going to help the women with the 16yr old son. Thank you. It's people like you that make people like us have a little bit of faith that things will get better

I want to help a family too but I'm afraid of being scammed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 440235


here in TN the salvation army helps the locals. why not contact them, in my opinion they are one of the few groups I trust with truly making a positiv difference in the life of many needy.

I am so happy to hear how many of you want to help someone. may the Heavenly Lord bless you for your kindness.

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
Why do people have kids they can't afford and then
need to ask for hand outs at christmas? I raised
four boys as a waitress and never thought to beg
for gifts from strangers. Some holidays were
plusher than others but always lots of love and
tradition. Sorry to be a grinch, but I see it
all the time. Yesterday I ran into a woman I knew
long time ago, ten kids! Then said my brother
was her secret santa or whatever you call it.
Does anyone have any pride anymore??
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 541939


WOW!!! For someone who raised her children with such pride - what happened to your compassion? No one said the people needing help weren't working or trying to make a living! LOTS and LOTS of people work very hard and are VERY GOOD, LOVING, CARING parents.....but get in a place they need help! Open your heart instead of judging. So many people criticize and judge that it is very hard to ask for help. Most people who really need help only ask for others - not themselves. Yes, when we choose to care - choose to love - choose to help we may get hurt by someone dishonest but OUR hearts are in the right place! I can't explain for anyone why they have 10 children or 2 or 4 - but sometimes the children come before the hard times - or sometimes the person having the children may need the love and acceptance that she thinks having children will bring........who knows.......but LOVE and compassion helps way more than condemnation and judgement! Blessings to all who are trying to do their best and help. There will always be someone trying to beat the system and get something for nothing - they definitely need prayers because they don't know the feelings of helping others. Hugs.

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas

I am looking for a family I can help this coming Christmas.

Last year I helped a young woman with 4 kids.
It was more of a blessing to me then I could have imagined.

Last year I asked for donations or gifts from my friends and local businesses. I had a car load.

I urge you to find someone you can help. Go to your local foodbank or all a local womans shelter.
There are plenty who need help.
I want to anonymously ask for help for a family this year this wonderful young women that works part time with me has two children a 2 year little girl and a 6 year old boy she and her family have had a really rough time this year she had been out of work for almost 2years unable to find work and her husband had gotten hurt a work and had to have surgery while he was out they had no income coming in they got so behind they were barely making it by there lights and water had been cut off there were several occasions where he and she had to sell every thing they had of any value just to keep food on the table and most nights they would do with out just so the kids would have somthing to eat they are both very hard workers and never complain they are trying there very best just to live and not even comfortable there have been several occasions that I had given them food or laundry detergent just little thing I wish I could do more for this family she had cofided in me last week when I walked into the break room and caught her crying because she didnt have the money to do Christmas and had to break it to her son
That christmas wasnt coming this year because mommy and daddy couldnt afford santa they dont even have a tree they use every bit of money they make for grocerys or gas to get to work or bills they havent gone out or splurged money on there selves in over 2 years so I am writing to you today because of your post I wish that I could help them but this is the only thing I can do is try to find someone like you who would oike to help this greatful loving family.

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
that is very cool

the company i now work for does this every year, they are actually very community centered, which is nice

the food banks here in michigan are absolutely swamped with requests, there are so many people hurting right now, thanksgiving is this week and they always need volunteers to help serve food at churches and missions

if you want your life to get better, stop thinking about yourself and help others, it works

money is tight for EVERYONE i know right now, which can make for a stressful holiday season, but it can also make one get creative, a well thought out handwritten letter can mean more to a loved one than anything else in the world

i have been buying small gifts all year as i find things on clearance
 Quoting: malu



That is cool of you as well.

I am excited and hopefully I will find a family this week.

If anyone knows of someone around akron ohio who needs help leave an email address and I will contact you.
