Sin­gle dad needs help got three kids

Times-Record - - FRONT PAGE -

Philip lives in St. Michaels with his three boys, Thomas, Avery and Eli­jah, who are 14, 12 and nine. The children are strug­gling with the loss of their mother to leukemia ear­lier this year. She passed sud­denly and has left the fam­ily with only one source of in­come.

Philip works long hours to sup­port the boys, most of time on his feet in con­struc­tion. When he is off, he is rarely able to pick up Thomas, Avery and Eli­jah from school on time. With only one source of in­come, Philip is afraid of los­ing his home.

Thomas, Avery and Eli­jah have no other fam­ily and have only Philip to rely on for cloth­ing, food and trans­porta­tion to and from school. While Philip feels he is pro­vid­ing, he is sad he is not spend­ing enough time with the kids.

Philip would like to give Thomas, Avery and Eli­jah a great Christ­mas by giv­ing them new school sup­plies, win­ter wear and other ne­ces­si­ties.
