help in time of need, HELP PEOPLE: I need help DEPERATELY--- Its 12/16/12, When I started thinking about

I need help DEPERATELY--- Its 12/16/12, When I started thinking about writing this.. I need financial assistance, I have kids and I am a fulltime student who does receive public assistance with Christmas just around the corner and WE are having to be moved out by Jan 2013.. I do NOT have this kind of money at all--- I barely make it month to month and I have called 211 looking for ANY TYPE of ASSISTANCE and to no avail have I found ANYTHING-- I have posted here before for CHRISTMAS HELP ALSO--- but I really don't know what to do--- I'm very STRESSED and do nothing but be depressed and cry, I don't tell my children what is happening right now cause this is an adult worry... UGH... PLEASE SOMEONE.. ANYONE... If you can HELP in anyway: financial or information, I appreciate anything right now... PLEASE I am asking that you contact me to let me know either way if you can assist me. THIS IS FROM A PREVIOUS POSTING I HAD PUT UP---> If you need clothing sizes or a list of what they would like, I can provide them. My email is INCLUDED HERE so please we are struggling to move out of this place we are in but financially we just can't do it my daughter has found a job but has yet to start I have also started to look but don't know where I will fit it in, but the 2 older ones they both WANT to HELP, I DO UNDERSTAND that the financial situations of our economy is making employment hard to find and get, but we are trying. I only get $136 a month from cash assistance/ public assistance and I am in a KEYS program that pays me 10 hours a week so every 2 weeks I get about $140 and with food stamps it is around $550, with this assistance I am grateful but I know it is NOT enough and to be able to find a place bigger for us and trying to come up with the money to move is difficult--I really do need the help, I am currently working on my education and hoping that my new year 2013 has something waiting for me to better my life cause I'm jumping in head first at the opportunity to do it. I do appreciate any and all help that I am able to receive.

Need A Christmas For my babies this year! I'm a single mother of 4 children who all have special needs, except my oldest, who's my niece. Most of which is emotional. Boy Age 1, he loves to dance and give kisses. Boy Age 4, very smart, missing front teeth from emotional problems, but has a beautiful smile. Boy age 6 loves video games, school, and the computer. Very lovable when he's not upset. Girl age 16 and always on the honor roll. Father pasted when she was young but never let it hold her back. The father of my boys, lost his job and has health issues and was only able to buy food this year. I am truely lost.No money for a home, a descent phone to contact anyone, clothing, and mostly no money for any Christmas. They keep asking when can they go see Santa, but I'm afraid to let them see Santa and they get nothing Christmas morning. If there are some loving folks out there that would like to be Santa for my children this Christmas and Me too. I would love to hear from you soon. I don't have a phone, but use my mothers to respond to things.Merry Christmas, even if we are not picked this Christmas. Thank you anyway. This is the most important part of the year for my children because they don't get anything for there birthdays either.

Hello in August 2012 my children and I lost my mother- their grandmother and in August

Hello in August 2012 my children and I lost my mother- their grandmother and in August 2012 this year my dad their grandfather had two aneurysms, hemorrhage on the brain, meningitis, pneumonia, 58 days in critical carw iCU, & now has been in a long term acute care facility for a month, I have to go to the current place he is at now atleast twice a day which makes job hunting impossible as I usually don't have much gas at all and until yesterday my yruck was broke down. we found out yesterday that he jas a blood infection and may have to go back to the hospital if they can't get rid of it with antibiotics. He will have to be in a Rehabilitation center for 18 months to 2 years. We have had a very long, emotional, 2 years. Everything has been extra hard on our family. My fiancée works a very low income job and we are only hanging on financially by a thin thread. Our rent is behind and today our lights were due for disconnection, our gas and water bill is next. I've applied for Christmas help through the kid's school; at tgis point im looking desperately for financial help. Thanks so much.

We have always helped others on the holidays. Never thought there would come a time that we would be the one's in need! We would greatly appreciate any help that could be given! God Bless!

Shop with a cop or Help with a bunk bed set in the new section of the D.I. and matching bedding

I am a grandmother that raise 2 of my grandsons ages 7 and 8 who are both ADHD- I have had some major medical issues the last few years. I have not been able to work for over a year do to illnesses. My husband has been the sole provider, with medical bills this year is going to be almost impossible to have a Christmas for them. We give them all that we can as in the daily living. For the extra Special Events that have came and gone this year have not been special event days they have been just another day maybe except for a cake and candles and a favorite dinner. I am Have never asked for help, and am really not sure how to do it I am the one that is helping out. But this Year is totally a turn around. thank- you to everyone that does help. the boys have been asking for bunk beds so they can have more room to play. They seen the Bunk Beds in the new area at the D.I. and that is all that they really talk about that is what they want, and a pair of sheets and blaklet that matches so they can make their room nice.
