It's hard to help people anymore because you don't know what they do with their money. Are the drugheads? Would they just return the gifts you got them for money? It's hard.

Instead of asking for help on Topix go the the family resource center at your children's school. Or the fire department. This is not the place to get help.

Holy Rollers are giving away toys on Saturday at the church by Fields Bridge. There is a schedule in this week's paper.

Most people just make a minimum wage. It's hard for anyone with a low income to get through xmas. When you struggle to pay the bills and put food on the table, the gift buying becomes such a burden sometimes that it takes the fun out of xmas. It becomes the dreaded part of the year. In my younger years with the wife and kids and a combined income we hardly made it through with gifts and a meal but we made it. So you see "starve", your "get a job and condoms" remark has no bearing here. You have no idea what the situation of people is and you make judgements based on a post. Even the hardest working people hit hard times and need a little help along the way. It doesn't hurt to lend a hand when you know what the story is.....

In my years I have found one thing to be true, hard working people have pride and do not broadcast situations on internet begging. They make a way even when it seems hopeless. I have been in this situation before when my wife and I didn't even have good water to drink or hardly food in the cabinets. We lived without electric for close to 2 years and I took creek baths to clean even in winter. One of the hardest things I've had to do is tell my son one day as he ask me for a Mcdonalds hamburger no we couldn't afford it Hamburgers at the time were $.59 plus tax. I did not ask for help because I had pride and dignity in myself and knew that with persistence and trusting God I would prevail. I am only 41 years old and my life is much different now and I have pride in knowing where I was and where I am now. I am absolutely sorry for families that struggle, I have alot. Learn to budget and manage with the situation you are in and don't feel like you or your family are owed anything, if your job doesn't supply your need try doing side work of some sort. Where there is a will, There is a way, I promise that. I am not putting anyone down or trying to be mean, but people have no pride in themselves and feel like they are owed or like they can't do anything about their situation and they can with willpower. I truly hope you can do well, there is a way without begging. Have "PRIDE" in yourself and have a good day.

I commend you for you're strong will & pride . If more people had that attitude this country as a whole would be so much better off ! Again, congratulations on you're accomplishments .

When I was a child i lost both my parents. Fortunately relatives took us in. It was a struggle, with no government help. Then we lost one of those relatives and things got worse. We had a roof over our heads, and a little to eat, and were warm, but being a kid was sad there would be no Christmas. Christmas Day, instead of the turkey dinner from years past, we had chicken- she was a tough old bird after years of giving us eggs. An Aunt stopped by to wish us happy holidays. She saw us sitting around, no tree, no presents, no candy and oranges. She left shortly and returned with a yellow Dollar General Store bag. She proceeded to give each of us one item. My brother a pair of socks, cousin a pair of gloves, other cousin a pair of slippers, and me- I received a small mirror with the words pretty girl on it. I kept it over twenty years, till it was broken. She spent one dollar on each of us- but it wasnt the gift, it was the fact she cared. And she had a housefull of kids and so very little to give. So please help someone if you can, and remember Jesus is the reason for the season, but children dont always understand that.

It is wonderful you are helping out these families. I just wantef to point out Goodwill is a for profit organization and they do nothing for people in the area. They do hire a few people with disabilities, but not many. Christian Social Services keep prices very low, help with food, utilities, etc. Please consider them over Goodwill when you donate. They really appreciate everything. God bless you all
just a thought

if you are going to make donations please consider giving them to local organizations, I myself love goodwill but I do know that while Goodwill does help people you can help more people locally by donating items to those, they usually pass them out free of charge, i know Christian social services in morehead as well as Gateway Helping Hands Food Bank, they take in donations other than food as well. Kinsway Ministry in olive hill or any place like that, ask around and see if there is a local organization that could use them first if not, then take them to Goodwill so they benefit someone... have a great day...

My mother and father had pride like you,they would not receive any help. Dad worked 5 days a week 10 hours a day with 9 to support. I remember one year a church or someone brought us a Christmas basket and sit it in the middle of our kitchen floor. all of us little kids rushed over to look at the bags of oranges,apples,a big ham and jumped up and down with joy ! But my mother said "Pick that box up and take it with you ,we do not accept charity!" They did,I cried,because we were eating beans and potatoes every day. Another time the grade school I atented had a clothing drive ,I picked out a poodle skirt,saddle shoes ,a bunch of other clothes ,and carried them home with me after school was out. As soon as my mother saw the bag of clothing ,she marched me back to school and told my teacher "we do not accept charity !". I promised myself that whenever I grew up,I would never let pride keep my kids from anything they needed !! Ps Jobs are hard to find,so be careful how you judge,each of us is only a few pay checks away from being homeless.
