Struggling local family could use a helping hand this Christmas

-

David and Juliette have six young children, ages 5 to 10, between them. David had just started a new career as a commercial driver when COVID-19 shut everything down and he lost his job. They have been trying to survive on Juliette’s single income and the small amount he receives from unemployme­nt.

In October, David started taking classes at Chesapeake College in hopes of finding a new, better job. Their cars are old and frequently break down. Between paying bills and trying to keep the cars running so they can work and go to school, there’s no money left for Christmas gifts.

Your donation to The Star Democrat‘ s Brighter Christmas Fund could help David and Juliette and their family during the holiday season.

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.
