Thanks for visiting Cares for Christmas!

Our goal is to help people in our community who are doing their best to get by on their own, and wouldn’t ask for help themselves. These individuals did not apply to be helped, but were nominated by others.

Back to Family List


Family 7

The grandfather is a truck driver and is gone for 1-3 weeks at a time. He will be having surgery at the end of December and will need to be off work for at least 2 months. The Grandmother stays home and watches grandchildren, for the grown kids to work. They have 3 grown children in their home, 2 of which are married. There are 4 young grandchildren and another on the way. This family looks out for each other and recognize the value of family. I’ve watched them sacrifice for each other and work to make their situation better. They rarely ask for help, but when I’ve had the chance to serve them, they are so grateful. One daughter is getting ready to take the ACT, so she can pursue a college degree.
