  • You can try contacting Toys for Tots. It's a little late, but they still may be able to help you. Go to www.toysfortots.org and click on the Request Toys tab at the top to find the contact info for your area.

  • You might also check with the city. The one I live in has different organizations that help (police, sherriff, Border Patrol, etc.) good Luck.

  • CHURCHES AND ESPECIALLY YOUR CHILDS SCHOOL WILL HELP YOU, GO TO THE OFFICE AND ASK TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE IN CHARGE OF "CHARITY OR COMMUNITY AIDE" AND THEY WILL MAKE SURE YOU GET SOME FOOD AND GIFTS! GOD BLESS!

  • Local community churches and police/fire departments would know.  If you're on foodstamps, wic or any assistance you can go into there and tell them your situation, there may be a form you fill out explaining x-mas dinner, they ask your children's name and age, nothing more and if you get picked up you will get the help you're seeking, however there are a lot and I do know many of these programs have a filling limit that can cause you to be unable to get on if you try to get help too late... good luck to you :-)
