The following post comes from my wife. I know the family involved, and they are a mutual friend of another of our reporters also. I can verify they are great people, and deserving of help. Please help us help them out this holiday season.

I know it is very close to Christmas, but a family needs your help! They did not hear back from the organizations they contacted, and want to provide their children with a wonderful Christmas. Both of the kids have serious medical conditions, and they work very hard to give their children everything they need to fight their battles against these conditions, and they both have overcome many obstacles themselves. Their son has just started to believe in Santa and cannot wait for Christmas morning. He loves Paw Patrol, Blaze and the Monster Machines, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The toys don’t have to be new. Their baby girl needs 9 month clothing, and basic baby toys. Please PM me if you can help and I will give you more information.

I feel the need to add that while the family in question is more than willing to accept less than new toys, we please ask that all stuffed animals be brand new as both children have weakened immune systems and while you may have washed them many times, we would rather not take that chance.

If you would like to help, please send an email to OCSN06 at [email protected] and we will do our best to arrange a drop-off or pickup location.

Thank you again, and please, SHARE this story as wide as you can.
