Sin­gle mom wants gifts for daugh­ters

Record Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Az­iza is a sin­gle mother who is rais­ing her 4-yearold daugh­ter, Monique, and

2-year-old daugh­ter, Mcken­zie.

Since she does not re­ceive any help from out­side sources, Az­iza has fallen be­hind on her bills and rent. She lives in fear that she will be evicted from her apart­ment, which will leave her and her daugh­ters with­out a home.

The cost of liv­ing ex­ceeds the amount she makes, even though she has two jobs that re­quire her to some­times work seven days a week. Be­cause of her bills, she has no money to get her girls any Christ­mas gifts.

Az­iza feels hor­ri­ble for fail­ing her girls and is liv­ing in fear of what might be their fate. De­spite be­ing be­hind on bills, she would like to build the hol­i­day spirit in her house and would ap­pre­ci­ate some help so she can get presents for her girls, in­clud­ing toys, win­ter clothes and shoes.

Your do­na­tion to The Star Demo­crat‘s Brighter Christ­mas Fund could help Az­iza and her fam­ily dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son. Tax-de­ductible do­na­tions, which also help other fam­i­lies in need on the Mid-shore, may be sent to: The Brighter Christ­mas Fund, c/o The Star Demo­crat, P.O. Box 600, Eas­ton, MD 21601.
