Please contact oceane if you have something for this family.

What is your family situation?

I am a mom to three little boys and full time college student. DH is also a full time student, finishing up his last year of school while also working part time and for the military reserves. I was looking forward to not needing Holiday Helpers this year; we had Christmas money saved up and planned on taking our family on a Disneyland vacation for their (our) Christmas presents. But, a few weeks ago our transmission went out on our family van, and now our savings is gone. Our other car is also not running, and we just had to relocate to a new house, closer to our school. Actually, October has been a really hard month, and we've faced a lot of setbacks because of everything that's gone wrong this month! Which is why I am here, to ask for help so my boys can have a good Christmas this year. We don't need much, as long as we make good memories and they know they are loved.
