Single mom needs help with the holidays
Jasmine Andrews is a single mom, struggling to make ends meet. She works at a local department store, but hours have been cut and she often only gets assigned two or three shifts a week. She has had to quarantine twice in the past two months due to COVID-19 exposure, which means no income coming in.
Jasmine said she is working to get caught up on her bills, and there’s no money left for presents for her two sons,Toby, 9, and Brandon, 1.
A donation to the Brighter Christmas Fund could help provide a brighter Christmas for Toby and Brandon.
The Brighter Christmas Fund is a 501(c)(3) charity, and 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.
