**Spotlight on Families in Need**
Spotlight on FIN #32!
Meet FIN #32
This family in need was moved to "Needs Met" and, sadly, their sponsor was not able to come through. For this, our last week of Holiday Helper 2010, please, please consider helping this family who has spent a great deal of time and energy waiting for items that never came.
Thank you to everyone who has helped our families in need! Without you, this wonderful blessing would not be possible!
What is your family situation?
Our daughter was born special needs August '09. She has a lot of medical expenses not covered by insurance, and my husband is having to have surgery at the end of October which means we'll be living without 70% of our already very low income until he recovers. Money is tight and it seems that it won't be any better for the holidays. Thank you so much for your help. Happy Holidays.
Added on 10/18: I was in an accident last Thursday and suddenly we have $3,000+ of new medical expenses unpaid by insurance. I'm so bummed that this has happened so close to Christmas.
Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (Cat, dog, smoke) Smoke allergies (asthma)
Please prioritize the top 3 needs of your family:
*cloth diapers for baby
*staples like toilet paper, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, etc
Which holiday do you celebrate? Christmas
