This is from a fishing site that i belong to. we have helped 2 family s for the last 3 years and we have been very successful. Last year we were able to help a third family whose trailer burned a week before Christmas. If you would like to help it will be greatly appreciated. Ladies and, Gentlemen, it's that time of year again! It's the time when we humbly open our wallets for the sake of helping others in need during the Christmas season. This is a season for rejoice and, for most, it is. For some though, this is when disappointment sets in for those who, for whatever reason, can't provide for their families. That's where we step in! For the past several years, with the help of so many people here, we have been largely successful in putting smiles on the faces of families in need! This isn't just about giving presents to kids. We've given, to each family we've helped, a FULL Christmas dinner, fuel cards, gift cards to clothing outlets, gift cards to shoe stores fishing equipment and, the list goes on. Most importantly, we've given a moment of peace to folks who may not have otherwise had it. I've been on several of the deliveries and, I will admit, I've never left with dry eyes. We will be doing the format a little different this year, however. Previously, we've picked a family for the SW side and, one from the SE side of LA. Remarkably, last year, we wound up able to help a third family! This year, we will be simply helping as many as we can, regardless of geography. As I understand it, we already have one family located. If I remember correctly, she is a single mother with four kids who is fighting for her life with cancer. I want us to help this family! Thank You, Bob Lemings / eman. [email protected] or PM me thru SMF. P.S. We do not buy gift cards to stores where alcohol or tobacco can be purchased. For groceries we deal w/ local grocers so that we can get gift certificates specifying such.
