Family in need

I have friends who are basically not going to have a Christmas(unless they can be helped). He is employed through Walmart, but hurt his back really bad and they won't take him back because he can't lift anything. She has liver disease at it's worst stage, and basically can't work because of the extreme pain. They live in a double wide, which they are about to lose because of no income. A van which they are about to lose because of again the lack of income. They tried workmans comp, but Walmart says that he didnt hurt his back on the job, so they can't help him. They have three children an 18, 15 and 6 year old. They were turned down by the angel tree because there aren't enough people to help those families.

If anybody is interested in helping this family please let me know, it would be greatly appreciated.

  • I am very interested in helping them. I was looking for a family in need, but I don't want to go through associations because I don't know if these families are really in need. Please, email me and tell me what they need for Christmas.

  • there must be other sign ups other than angel tree in your area? are there any churches in your area with similar sign ups or any local food/clothes pantries they can get some help at? have they applied for food stamps or any other gov't assistance programs?
