VALLEY SANTA: Family Seeks Assistance To Make Holiday Bright For Kids
Connie, a local grandmother, is raising three of her grandchildren.
Their father is addicted to drugs and not in their lives. Their mother, Connie’s daughter, hasn’t worked in years.
Connie wrote a letter to Valley Santa asking if her grandchildren could receive Christmas presents.
She also asked if Valley Santa could provide a Christmas gift to her other daughter Kara’s baby son, who lives with them as well.
Kara was laid off last year. She has been looking for a job, but can’t work for weeks since she just underwent an emergency C-section.
“Any help you could give us would truly be appreciated,” Connie wrote.
Connie’s husband recently filed for divorce and according to her letter, she was ordered to pay him spousal support.
The fees for lawyers “devastated us financially,” she wrote.
“I really want my grandchildren to have a wonderful Christmas,” Connie wrote. “My doctor will not let me work right now due to health issues. It’s been a rough year but, Praise God, next year will be better. I thank you for any help you can give us.”
