In this economy, you never know what will happen tomorrow. Renee, a single mother of three has learned this lesson the hard way. Secure in a job with a local medical supply company, she lived pay check to pay check, but was able to provide for her children effectively. Now twelve interviews, too many resumes to count, and seven months later, the savings are running out. Renee states, "It is difficult to ask for help when I know there are so many who need it. I am a proud woman, but I want my children to have Christmas and I can't do it alone;" a story familiar to so many today. Seth, age 10, would like a personal CD player and enjoys current pop music; he also enjoys building with Legos. Ross, age 8, would like a baseball glove and a plug and play video system. Katie, age 5, loves arts and crafts and hopes for Moxie dolls from Santa. Renee appreciates anything for her children and asks for your prayers for all those in her current situation.
