Needy Family Fund: Jobless mother of three needs help this holiday
MILTON — Following a brief hospitalization last year, Meagan was told by a case worker she was not well enough to return to work or to look for a job. So as Christmas approaches, the Milton mother learned of the Needy Family Fund, which could help her put presents under the tree for her three children.
She says, “I was told about the Needy Family Fund and how it could help do something for my children at Christmas. It’s a big help.”
Meagan has an 11-year-old son and daughters ages 8 and 7. While many children fill out lengthy lists, Meagan said hers would appreciate anything they receive. “The regular kid stuff,” she said.“Bikes, games, dolls. Anything would help.”
The Needy Family Fund provides food, toys, clothes and more for Valley families. It is a joint effort between the Milton and Sunbury Salvation Army, Susquehanna Bank, The Daily Item and the radio stations of Sunbury Broadcasting Corporation. The goal this year is $75,000 and you can donate to any branch of Susquehanna Bank. (The Daily Item)
