I am a mother of 3, who has been through so much this year. My kids had a horrible experience this year. Please if you know where I can get any help for Christmas it would be so much appreciated.

It's probably too late to apply for Christmas gifts from a charity, but if you are able to, you can earn some money to buy presents for your children. You can offer to clean someone's house or watch their children, rack leaves, shovel snow, etc. Who knows, it might turn into a regular money making opportunity for you.
Maybe you have something around your house that you can sell by putting an ad in the free press. If you only earn $30.00, you can take that money to the Dollar Tree or 99 Cent store and buy 10 different gifts for each of your children.
Whatever you do, the most important thing is to make your home filled with Love and happiness. That's what children really need.
I would like to know how I can get help for Christmas in Providence, Rhode Island. Thank you.
