Help get a family back into their home for Christmas
Organized by: Shari Lewis
I recently crossed paths with a mother of three who is currently living on the street outside a shelter here in Baton Rouge. She has been shunned from a few shelters in town because "there was no room". This family has faced great hardship and tragedy over the years. The children's father was murdered years ago, and this mother has been struggling to raise her kids alone ever since. She needs $650 to be able to pay her rent and get her children back into their home. When she told me her story, tears welled up in my eyes, and I felt compelled to take action. I would like to get her rent paid and do whatever else I can to make this family's Christmas a little brighter. If you have as much compassion as I do for this cause and would like to help, please donate. Anything is greatly appreciated. It's times like this that make me truly count all my blessings. Thanks y'all, and Merry Christmas!
