Mother needs Christ­mas spirit

Record Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Amanda lost her 12-yearold daugh­ter last year in a car crash.

Since then, she has been feel­ing de­pressed, and work­ing long shifts, not leav­ing her time to cope with the death of a child. Al­though work­ing hard, she has fallen on hard times and is strug­gling to sup­port her three chil­dren, James, 13, Lilly, 9, and Kate, 5.

She is wor­ried her cur­rent sit­u­a­tion will af­fect their Christ­mas joy.

For the past year, Amanda’s three chil­dren have also been feel­ing de­pressed, re­play­ing mem­o­ries of their sis­ter’s cheer­ful spirit. Al­though the fam­ily is deal­ing with the af­ter­math, Amanda would like for her son and two daugh­ters to ig­nite the hol­i­day spirit in their house.

Amanda is in need of toys, win­ter clothes and shoes for her and her chil­dren.
