Please contact TracyMom1 if you have things for this family.

What is your family situation?
Last year I found myself a single mother and have been battling my exH in court for a year now, which has been incredibly expensive. I don't have a job, but I am a student and have been living off student money. I have a sweet and wonderful fiance who has a part time job and is also a full time student. We live paycheck to paycheck, but Nov & Dec are our months where we will have the least amount of income, due to DF not having drill (he is in the reserves) at all in Dec, and our student money is gone until Jan. We have a baby on the way, who is also due in December.

Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (e.g. cat, dog, smoke) Vegetarian, gluten-free

Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate? Non-religious Christmas

Please list up to 2 items per person in your family and up to 2 items for your family as a whole below. (If you are requesting gift cards, please specify local or online stores that, if money is available, gift cards can be provided that you can conveniently use.)
