I am with All Occasions Desserts, we are very interested in setting up a charity at our Apple Harvest Festival to help out children in need, along with our gourmet treats. Do you know of any in the area of Berkeley Co. Morgan Co. or any other counties around.
There is a family that just moved to Martinsburg. Where can I find help for them for Christmas? There are two small children, ages 2 and 3. Mom is a single mom who just moved in with our son. They went to high school together.
My son was living at home, but didn't want to see this girl and her little ones on the street.
We are trying to help all we can, but our funds are low.
I would like to find out how to get these children some gifts for Christmas?
I would love to help you give some gifts to these children. I'm trying to teach my son how important it is to give to others. I want to include him in this process 100%. We have lots of toys that are barely used that we would love to donate. We will even wrap them. Please let me know how I can get these toys to the family in need.
I have recently moved and all my money has gone for rent and bills. I have 2 daughters ages 9 and 11. It's been rough; we probably won't be celebrating this year. So does anyone know where I can get some help so my lil girls can have something for Christmas? I can't even afford to get a tree. It makes me feel so bad. Anyone know anywhere with it being so close to x- mas? Please help.

As a mother of 5 who spent more time raising my kids alone than with help from their father, you first need to check with your community centers. Most offer some assistance at Christmas time. Salvation Army usually offers gifts. Your kids will be fine, no matter how little you think they're getting. 3 of my kids are grown now, and very successful. I think getting by with less growing up, gave them a greater incentive to work hard. They're thriving now.
I am a young mother of 2 girls, 4 and 7 years old. I'm desperately trying to find any kind of Christmas help for them. We don't have much and as soon as all the bills and stuff is paid, we're broke. My girls deserve a break, they're very good kids and have been through so much in the past 2 years with my 2 sisters passing away and 5 other close relatives passing too. I just want so badly for this Christmas to not be like their last one, they are so excited about Santa coming and I'm scared their going to be let down. If anyone knows any way for me to get them some Christmas gifts please let me know! Thank you
