Unemployed, single mom needs some help


Rhonda works as a personal caregiver. Her elderly employer died about three months ago, and she hasn’t been able to find another client.

She is a single mom raising a 10-year-old son, Oscar. His dad isn’t in the picture. Rhonda’s mom helps out when she can but is struggling to meet her own bills.

A donation to the Brighter Christmas Fund would help provide presents for Oscar to open Christmas morning.

The Brighter Christmas Fund is a 501(c)(3) charity, and taxdeducti­ble 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. Donations also may be made online via credit card or Paypal at www.brighterch­ristmasfun­ Click the “Donate” button.
