The children in this state are in the greatest need. I recently found myself homeless, sleeping at the Wal-Mart parking lot with 8 dogs & 2 cats feeling very alone, dejected & sorry for myself I took a look around & noticed others there,entire families, & other pet owners, some elderly, some with obvious mental health or physical health issues. Some who just simply could not get a job. The thing that struck me the most profoundly is that everyone was willing to share seeing my predicament, they all "pitched" in to help me learn how to fare in my new world, it seems they had lost everything but their humanity, you could see the pain in the parent's eyes as the children excitedly talked about what they might get from Santa that very night. I learned there was indeed a Santa!!!! In an RV not far away, they had pooled their money & hit up the dollar stores, & thrift shop, while people busily wrapped presents for the children & each other, a single microwave pumped out enough hot water keep all of us loaded up with hot cocoa, coffee & tea. My friend paged me to come to her house but I had to wait... I had to see the joy that I knew the morning would bring as the lady from RV went knocking madly on the different cars telling them that some big fat guy in a red suit broke into their RV & left a bunch of stuff for them!!! That morning not one child was left disappointed, no complaints about a single gift that wasn't from a local mall, & there was not a dry eye in the parking lot! I'd have to mark  2010 as my most meaningful Christmas to date, but the fact still remains that those people are still homeless, & with the governor's cuts those numbers can only increase 10-fold. This is a list of what we need the most to be able to distribute to homeless families & those on the brink. I would ask that if you know of a family in need that you contact us so we can try to help or at least get them some community resources that they may need.
