NFF: Single mom wants nice holiday for son
SUNBURY — Sometimes, things spiral out of control despite a family’s best intentions. Linda, a Mifflinburg single mother who asked that her last name not be used, said she was laid off in 2009 and has been working at part-time jobs ever since. Almost in tears Linda says she can’t find a full-time job. She thanks God, that she has been able to keep her home, but some months, she says she has a lot of trouble meeting the mortgage payment.
She has an 11-year-old son. She says she doesn’t want anything for herself this holiday, she just wants her son to enjoy the holiday season, just like his school friends. She says he likes video games and also needs some new clothes.
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 www.wkok.com. (Rick Dandes)
