The Salvation Army usually provides some help. They do it different ways, different years. Call them and ask. There is Toys For Tots, however, they aren't all over. A lot of the places that help have combined forces and you have to apply in one location. Call 211, it is the number for an organization called Helpline. It is almost all across the nation.

What they do is keep a list of different places people can go for different kinds of help. Keep in mind when it comes to gifts most organizations don't help kids beyond 12 years of age, some even younger. The way I avoid needing help for Christmas is I start my shopping in January.


I have been done for at least one month. I spend $20.00 on each of my adult kids and grand kids that range in age from 15-25. I also spend that on one really close aunt and cousin.

Also if I come across a $20.00 item that is on sale for $10-15.00, that counts as $20.00. You can also start stockpiling Christmas groceries early in the year. Also for gifts, your kids should understand times are hard, and be satisfied with gifts from dollar stores, and even sometimes you can find new or things that look like new at thrift stores. Next year start your shopping in January. No matter how young your kids are they should realize some areas of the home are off limits.

Check your local newspapers and news channel websites. And if you have children, a lot of schools have a program if you check into it.


Toys that people donate to students that don't have a whole lot, and whose families are struggling with the holidays.

There are a lot of programs that can help you. You could also organize your own sales to get money. There are always bake sales and if you check in the local news paper, there are always places where you could get a table very cheap and sell things for profit.
Good luck and have a great Christmas
