  • I wish I could help but honestly I'm probably worse off than most people. The thing is that you might not be able to get on a list. They are overfilled with people needing help. Do what I did and plan ahead. Buy a few things at the Dollar Tree or whatever so at least they'll have something to open if nothing else comes through. I'm sorry.

  • Contact your local police department. Most have a program called SHOP WITH A COP. They will give you money to buy gifts with and while you are shopping, a cop will shop with the kids. They will pick out gifts for family. It is a lot of fun. Also, even if your area does not do that, they will have names and contact info for other programs in your area.

  • Call your local crisis center. They usually have a list of places ot contact that can help out. Also talk to your kids about doing a homemade xmas. I talked to my boys about it a few weeks ago and they are SOOO excited about making things. They have been doing a lot of painting on paper bags and cutting them out to put them in new frames.

    We have also been making a lot of "coupon" books for their brothers that help them creative and the hurry up to finish their homework, then hide out to create something new. Good luck!

  • If you belong to a church ask your pastor or whoever to generate a toy donation for your children!

  • The Salvation Army. They do an "Angel Tree" every year to help out families in need with their Christmas.
