Im sure there are church,s and such in town. But heres what I suggest,,,, sign up on yahoo freecycle Granite City. If you dont know what that is ,,, go and find out. Its a place where people post things they want to get rid of and post things that they need. Ive seen everything from cars to toys being given away and just as much being asked for. If you sign up (you will need a yahoo e-mail) and post what you posted on here I personally will help you out with cloths and christmas toys. You take the first step and ill walk the rest of the way with ya!

You might check with Grace Baptist Church I know they are a collection sight for the boy scouts and also do baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas every year. They are on Edison not sure about the phone number.

YUM, thanks for the information. I didnt post this for pitty, I just really dont know what to do. She wears 2t clothes, and well she is a typical 2 year old as far as playing with toys.. she loves to color and watch cartoon movies. So if anyone has anything they would be willing to part with i'd appreciate it. I know there are a ton of people in my situation, and nothing makes me special.. I just love my Daugther, and want to see her have a good Christmas.

No pity involved! And yes you are something special to that sweet little 2year old girl. Im willing to help you because I can,, gods been good to me and I havent been a good as I could,,, its that simple. Its a selfish thing on my part,, I want to feel needed and productive. If you cant get hooked up on freecycle, then we will fiqure a way to make this happen without meeting. Maybe I could purchase a kmart gift card for some cloths and a big lots gigt card for her christmas toys. I caould purchase them and leave them at the service counter for you to pick up! I think this will work. Let me think this through tomorrow and you check back on this thread. We will have to fiqure out how to make sure its you picking them up without giving up your identity?

We will make this happpen I promise!

you might want to try your daughters school, they have at my daughters school for the families that need help, they bring you christmas dinner and buy toys for your child or whatever they need. call them asap cause its right around thanksgiving they start shopping. i hope this helps
