New coats for family

Ms. M placed a call to the Red Cross crying for help for her four children. Her husband was in prison, and she could not afford any presents for her children for the holidays. Her wish list was simple, nothing costed over ten dollars. When she finished telling us about her kids lists, she asked if it would be possible to add something “kinda expensive,” a coat for her six-year-old. Her daughter had been wearing her brother’s old, torn hand-me-down. Santa’s Helpers delivered all the presents for Ms. M’s children, including brand new coats for each child.
