Hey everyone... I'm just trying to find some help for my babies for Christmas. Does anyone have any ideas... My husband works hard, but it takes almost all his income just to pay the house payment, not to mention everything else. I stay at home with the kids, but look for homes to clean. With the economy being so bad, my houses have descided to cut costs by cutting me. Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Call the Sheriff's Office. They do something at Christmas for kids like donating gifts, etc. for families that are having a hard time. They will probably be swamped with requests this year. Also maybe the lions club. I think most families are having a rough time this year and not spending as much on Christmas.

Get in touch with A to Z Auction. They collect each week & deliver to homes every Christmas. Call & let them know how many kids & their ages I'm sure they will help.

Many of the churches in the area can provide help during hard times. If you belong ask at yours and if not you might want to consider joining one in the area. Not saying you have to join to receive help however especially at times like this prayer doesn't hurt. God bless and good luck.

I know most all kids want toys for x-mass..and this may sound a bit harsh to some ,but maybe it is time we start to teach our kids the true meaning of x-mass..and stop all those high priced purchases..

If you want to teach the Real meaning of CHRISTmas you first need to learn how to spell it.. And yes children have been taught that it is all about the gifts. My feeling is if three gifts are great enough for the Son of Man that is more than enough for children. We have totally lost sight of what it is all about. Praising and Thanking God for sending his Son for us and Jesus for giving his life for us so that we could have life.

This too may seem harsh, but the truth. It's time that everyone fend for themselves. A ruff time is about to hit this country, and I for one am not in the "giving" mood. Obama is about to take my hard earned money.

Go ask Obama or one of his followers. I'm sure they will lend a hand .... oh, I almost forgot. Those are the very people looking for a handout!!!!!!!

Tis' not the season right now!!

Everyone needs to smoke less, drink less, eat less, and pay attention. Every dollar counts these days.

Obviously you do not know the true meaning of Christmas either. Christmas is about giving to those less fortunate and most importantly giving THANKS to our Father - for this is just a walk on earth, our struggles though hard are only temporary, and we have so much more waiting on us in HIS kingdom of heaven. No child should go without receiving a gift on Christmas.

There are people who take advantage of the system, I have saw families take and take and take giving their children dozens of gifts that have been donated by various organizations, who dont know they are receiving help from every other agency in the area.

If your hubby works during the day,Have you ever considered evening/night work????McD's,Hardees,SubWay are always looking for workers.They pay at least $7.50 hr.,The Nursing Home and BrassTown Manor hire alot.This would help your family more than looking for a hand-out.Get your GED or HS Diploma,This would be helpful.The Lord helps those who help themselves!
Alot of elderly need sitters at night also.

Too bad all agencies in the county can not have a co-ordinated effort. Heard a story of a non-working woman signing up for help at so many places, she had to make two trips to haul the things she received.

That says a lot about the generosity of people in our area. It is my understanding that several of the local churches are getting together to help prevent this sort of thing.

I saw a woman do the same. But she wasn't a non-working parent, both she and her husband work, and he has a pretty good job, they have 4 kids. I dont think you have to prove you need assistance, even though most people have enough pride so that unless they really need help they won't ask, much take advantage.

You can tell the difference between the straight Reality, and this queer fake who has a burr up his ass, by the town under the name.

My feeling is that if people "steal" from the goodness of others they will never rise up to be able to better themselves. They will always struggle possible even worse than what they do now. I honestly don't know how people can take advantage of other people help and sleep and even enjoy what they have. All I can say is that they WILL answer for it one day.
