Family #5 – This family is headed by a single mom who is worried about having to move to a 2-bedroom apartment with 3-year-old Boy, Girl, Girl triplets before the end of the year. We’re sure Christmas gifts are pretty low down on the list, so we’d like to fill that gap. This family lives near a Walmart and a Target.
Family #6 – This mid-west family are survivors of several bad storms that have caused them to lose many things that can never be replaced. This family is struggling financially to not only make repairs on their home, but to give their children a special holiday. This family has 19-year-old Girl, Boy, Boy triplets, along with a 16-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl.

They move around a lot and have landed on the west coast for the next 2 years. Dad is also in school, as is Mom. Their hope is to make a better life for their children, but times are hard now. We’d like to help them this year. Their wish list includes: For the Boy – pants size 8, shirts youth medium, books, Legos and Star Wars or Skylander toys. The girls wear size 2T and would like any age appropriate toys and stuffed animals. This family lives near Target and Kohls.
Family #8 – Adopted – This southeast family with 5-year-old triplets – identical twin boys and a girl has had their world turned upside down. One of the boys got very sick last year. Their world has completely changed. Both parents are self-employed, which is good because they can be home to take care of the kids, but hard because if they’re not working, there is no money coming in. They spend many hours each month in a hospital several hours away. They drive an old car and there are lots of expenses associated with overnight stays, transportation and medical bills. We’re sure Christmas gifts are pretty low on their list, so we’d like to help them make the holidays special.
Family #9 – This west coast family is headed by a single mom with 17-year-old triplet Boys, who have several medical issues, which makes it hard for Mom to consistently go to work. Mom is worried about so many things that we’d like to help her by giving her a gift card to help ease her financial burden and buy a few needed things for the boys.
