I'm doing everything I can to get help with getting toys and food for my family and I to have for the Christmas holidays. I'm also a disabled 49 year old grandmother in need of your help with food. I've sent email and letters to so many companies and organizations, with no one wanting to help us out with getting toys and food for my family. Help us out please.
