Please contact TracyMom1 if you have things for this family.

What is your family situation?
We have made less than $7,000 for the entire year and have only survived due to government assistance and selling non-essential personal belongings. I've been struggling to find more than part-time work and just started a full-time job a few weeks ago, which enables us to pay bills, but no extras. DH is unable to work, so he's a SAHD. Christmas gifts this year are going to be handmade or used and only for the kids.
Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? Cats and cigarette smoke.

Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate? Yule religiously and Christmas secularly.
