Well... in Maine they have a program called the bruce roberts fund... im not sure if its JUST for Maine though... Salvation army usually is a big help and I know that most food pantry's where I live give out baskets for thanksgiving and christmas so the families can have a good dinner on the holidays. I know where you are coming from because I have 3 children at home but im only living on $485 a month and it really kinda sucks. Well good luck to you. and remeber that it never hurts to pray... he looks out and helps when he can. god bless.
You know something? It really pisses me off for people that say its "demeening" to ask for help!! I dont think any of us accually like asking for help at all... but at least we have the courage to admit we cant do it on our own. I may not have a job right now... but some people go through paths in life and under circumstances are UNABLE to get jobs... so just because you have a job doesnt make you any friggin better than anyone else... why dont you try living in my shoes for a day and then tell me how you feel or anyone elses life for that matter! Yes... you need to work for what you get... i do odd jobs in my town because I cant afford a vehicle right now... so what? does that make me a bad person because I dont have a steady job? I didnt think so.... so before you start judging others... Think about what they have gone through. What you need to do is look at your own life and ask yourself.... "have a changed a persons life in a good way or a bad way?" judging people isnt going to get you anywhere! and people like you are the reason why people like myself have a hard time admitting that I need help.
Oh and to cheers to you FIDELIS well said!
I am a mother of three. I have a 2 yr old, a 4 year old and a 6 year old (step-daughter). Last year I was involved in a tragic accident where a little boy was behind my car in a parking lot while I was backing up and did not see him. My fiance was one of the first people to him... it has traumatized him since. The little boy passed away a few hours later. my life went down hill since then, with the depression taking over my life, i lost my car, my home, my schooling and everything i worked so hard for. I am now back on my feet in a fabulous new home but dont have any extra money because evrything I DO get goes to the bills. Since I have no car and can't afford one I only can work in the town I live in which there is nothing for either myself or fiance. We have been just skimming by with my TANF check of $485 / mo. I need help with christmas presents. If anyone knows of websites or organizations to help get toys and clothes for the holidays (cheap/free)Please let me know. thank you...
My daughter which is two... has SO many summer clothes but no fall or winter clothes. she wears 24-36 mo. I have been t the salvation army for help, but they were only able to give me three outfits, its a help but i need more than just three outfits. I also am looking for a toddler bed frame, i have a mattress but nothing for it to go in. Right now her mattress is on the floor and every frame i have found is either in REALLY bad condition or too expensive. If you need more info about me and my familys situation dont hesitate to look at my profile. thank you, all the help is greatly appreciated
i am in the same boat this year for christmas... i have a 4 & 2 year old... I did sign up for the bruce roberts fund, but i just wish they could have more ... if there is any place that can help please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. thank you
