to the fam­i­lies in time for Christ­mas.

Beth Wal­ter­scheidt, who owns Ev­er­green Farms with her hus­band, Mike, says of Sea­son for Car­ing, “I think it’s a great pro­gram. We’re look­ing for­ward to get­ting the trees into the homes.”

The farm west of El­gin is open from noon to dark week­days and Sun­day and 10 a.m. to dark on Satur­days.

The fam­i­lies who will re­ceive a tree in­clude 20year-old Anali­cia Rodriguez and her two daugh­ters, Anas­tashia, 3, and Aleina, 2. Their tree will be in their cot­tage at Austin Chil­dren’s Shel­ter. She and the shel­ter are work­ing on get­ting her an apart­ment, but they need do­na­tions for de­posits and rent.

Ethel Wright, a 65-yearold grand­mother who is rais­ing her four grand­chil­dren, will have a tree in her run­down mo­bile home in Kyle. The home needs ma­jor re­pairs in­clud­ing floor re­pairs, wiring, heat­ing and air con­di­tion­ing, win­dows, plumb­ing and more. Wright needs a gen­tly used mo­bile home or a builder to re­pair the cur­rent one.

Ed­die Cousins, 38, and Jamie Yancy, 33, and their six chil­dren will have a tree in their home in Round Rock. Their home needs new floor­ing, some re­pairs and a deep clean­ing.

And in a one-bed­room apart­ment in North Austin, Juana Rosas and her five chil­dren will have a tree this year. They want to be able to move into a big­ger apart­ment, but they need help with do­na­tions to be able to do that.

If you can help one of th­ese fam­i­lies have a bet­ter home for next Christ­mas, call 445-3590 or email com­mu­nity@sea­son­for­car­ing.com
