Christmas Help In Cleveland, Ohio

georgebailey started this conversation
My family and I would be truly thankful to help someone out in the Cleveland, Ohio area this Christmas. We have been there before, and we know what a challenge this time of year can be for families struggling to make ends meet. We all can use a little help now and again….no shame in that. If there is someone in our area that can use a little help, we would be honored to provide what we can.
Just know there are people out there who care. From someone who has been there….it does get better. If we can help in our small part, just drop us a line at santaincle@yahoo.com. Happy Holidays from our family to yours.

If you contact petsmart they should have the info/brochure intheir store about a local charity that can help by giving you free pet food. I cant remember name of the charity but think it was in North Olmsted. Good luck

My family is currently in searxh of Christmas help. I feel it is a miracle to have come across this page this morning! I live in Lakewood,Oh. I have 2 children. My son is 5 years young and has a severe form of cerebral palsy. His contagious smile speaks a million words. My sweet daughter is 2 years young and is the most patient, caring and loving little girl. We have currently fallen into a sudden finacial hardship within the past couple weeks and are asking for Christmas help. I recently split the childrens father and he then lost his job. This stopped my child support and although I have reported finacial changes to SSI he will not receive an increase in benefits until Feb.2014. Currently he receivezs $178 and $130 went to my car insurance. This is the first year Iv ever had to ask for help, we are usually the family that is sponsering kiddos at Christmas time. I missed the deadline for Toys for Tots and have emailed 2 churches but not received a response back. My sweet little boy requires 24/7 around clock care from myself. I am sick just thinking about this. I promise should someone hy Hods good grace help my family I will pay it forward! thankyou.

Thanks so much. It is a struggle and thank you for the prayers, much appreciated. As for ideas, he is in need of 'cool' hats, gloves and scarf; he walks about 1 mile to and from school, so anything for warmth. As for 'want' ideas, he likes all things teen --- music (i-tune?), fashion, going out to eat, hanging with friends etc. Much easier when they were younger! Any help is bound to make his smile, large and mood, jubilant!

What an awesome way to reach out to those in need! Thank you for all you've accomplished and setting up this site!

Our situation is not unique as we are also in need of some help. We have a 15 y/o son who has had a difficult year. He has tried to commit suicide twice and as a result, he has had two hospital stays. He is a really great kid, just having difficulties with coping etc. I've lost a job position (I am a teacher), due to the time needed to devote to his healing, and insuring he is under medical care and on time to all appointments. Sadly, he is 'too old' to sign-up for toys with other great charity organizations, so I searched online and found you. :)

Recently, we had to move, home loan in default (deed in lieu of a foreclosure), and the changes have not been without difficulties; my hope is to provide something that he can smile about on Christmas morning.

Thanks for reading about our situation.
