Arkansas Christmas Charities

I'm a single mom with four children, two boys and two girls. We came out of a burnout and are in crisis right now. Where can I find Christmas help? My boys are 6 and 4 and the girls are 6 and 5. Thank you so much.

It is getting kind of late to be asking for help, however, you might get lucky and find some organization that isn't. No matter where you apply you will have to fill out an application and list your gross income. HELPLINE! is a national clearing house that keeps a list of organizations in different areas that provide different types of help to people. Their phone number is 211. Also you can call the Salvation Army, they are known to provide help to people.

I assume your kids Dad will be giving them gifts. Also don't they have grandparents and aunts and uncles that will give them gifts. All any kid needs is one gift each from their parents. You can also speak to the pastor of your church. Sometimes they will take up a special offering for a member of the congregation that is having problems.


Your homeowners/renters insurance should help your condition, as far as replacing items that you lost, therefore you shouldn't be that hard up. If you had insurance, you shouldn't have to be using cash to replace things that you might have lost.

Sorry to hear you are having stuggling issues. Check with Salvation Army - they provide food as well. Check with local churches and malls. Churches should have other ideas as well as being able to help you. The malls or local stores have a caring tree, you have to get registered, then they will place a card on the tree for your kids. Customers select one or two cards and do the shopping and they bring the packages back to store, for you to pick up or they will deliver. Check with them first. Also check with the United Way as they should also have a list. Will keep you in prayer!
