Letter # 3066 Struggling to get by #3066

My name is Kathryn and I live in ROHNERT PARK.

I am writing to you today because my family has a problem. At the end of January, I was laid off of my job of 5 years when the business sold. I found a new job within a couple of weeks, but my work closed down on March 13 because of COVID. My kids are now home from school doing distance learning, making it extremely difficult for me to find another job as we can't afford childcare. I do recieve unemployment, but very very little as I had just started my new job when this happened. We're really struggling right now to pay our rent and utilities and buy groceries. And now my 7 year old son needs new clothes and shoes, putting an added financial strain on us. We've never struggled like this before, and at this point I'm not even sure how we're going to be able to continue paying all our bills.

We are wishing that Secret Santa can help us out by granting this wish. My 7 year old son really needs some size 8 or medium jeans, long sleeved shirts and pajamas. My 6 year old son really needs a pair of boys size 1 tennis shoes. We could also use help either paying rent or utilities or purchasing groceries for the family.

If we were able to get this help from Secret Santa it would help. Warm clothes and sturdy shoes would be incredibly helpful in keeping my boys warm throughout the winter. Help paying for either rent or groceries would go a long way towards keeping food on the table and a roof over our heads. It would also help greatly in alleviating the constant stress and worry I feel in regards to taking care of our family.

Thank you very much and I wish you the best for the holiday season.
