NFF: Mother wants daughters to feel special

NFF:  Mother wants daughters to feel special


NEWCOLUMBIA– A New Columbia family has trouble making ends meet all year, but it’s particularly trying during the holidays.  Casey Hoey has two daughters, ages three and four.  She and their father want to give the girls a beautiful Christmas, but times are tough.


The girls’ father is having trouble finding a job, so the finances fall on Casey.  She works at a Chinese restaurant.  “I live off of $190 a week.  It’s very hard.”


Casey said without the Needy Family Fund, the holidays would not be as joyful.  “I just want my kids to have a good Christmas.  I want them to feel special.  They’re good girls, they really are.  I don’t want my troubles to effect their Christmas.”


This is Casey’s second time applying to the Needy Family Fund.  She hoped to be back on her feet this Christmas, but they are still struggling.   “When I did it a couple of years ago it was wonderful.  It’s an amazing program.  It really is.  They are very helpful and I’m so grateful to have something like that for my children,” Hoey said.


You can help Hoey and her family by donating to the Needy Family Fund.  Each year, The Daily Item, the Salvation Army of Milton and Sunbury, Susquehanna Bank and the radio stations of Sunbury Broadcasting Corporation team up to raise money for families in need.


The Salvation Army distributes toys, food, clothing, and gifts to eligible families. You are asked to please consider a generous contribution to the Needy Family Fund. Donations can be dropped off at any branch of the Susquehanna Bank. More details are posted at  (Codi Jade)
