Lawrence county KY has never to my knowledge put any thing up for Christmas help I've looked for the past 10 years it would mean the world to us parents to see we could get some kind of help

The organizations in our list should be able to help you with this, but Low Income Relief does not provide gifts, food or funds directly. You will need to contact the organizations in this list for assistance. I hope this helps out!

I am a single mother of 3 and have been in congestive heart failure for the past 2 years! I am unemployed and cannot provide Christmas for my children! I didn’t ask for help last year and have regretted it! But this year I am praying for Christmas memories for my children as my condition is not great although I’ve outlived the original prognosis time line in my soul I feel this may be their last year to have Xmas memories with me! Please help! I’m in Livingston parish Louisiana and am not familiar with any helping agencies! Thank you in advance Carrie

Lena, I'm so glad you are home from the hospital. I hope you are recovering well. Low Income Relief connects families with local resources. We do not give help directly to our readers. I double checked, and your area is currently on our research list. In the meantime, you could try for more resources near you. -Riley
