ASSISTANCE WITH CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR: I'm sick of worrying about how I'm gonna feed my family. People don't

I'm sick of worrying about how I'm gonna feed my family. People don't realize the pantrys give mostly caned goods & no meat. My grandson want to play with other kids but gets laughed at for wearing women's rain boots:( we really need warm cloths. The first pic is me & my oldest grandson then the youngest then the oldest at his other grandmas she helps as much as she can but he's her great grandson & she has a lot of grandchildren of her own. The last pic is my son that's how skinny he's gotten since his jaw was broke. Welfare didn't give us a heap benefit this year!! We just my my disability check & 64$ a month worth of food stamps. We would of been fine for Christmas but our car broke down & I had to use our Christmas $ to fix it & would be grateful for boots & some warm cloths for the boys & food. I'm a single mom & grandma. If you can't help we welcome prayers. Thank you God Bless!!

I am a 45yr old grandma recovering from mental illness taking care of her 9 & 2yr old grandsons also my 19yr old son lives with me & i'm on disability. I have spent yrs in day treatment getting my life back together after a bad nervous breakdown & now I'm raising my grandchildren. My 92yr old grandma bought me a car and it broke down recently & cost 600$ to fix it. I only get 64$ in food stamps cause I only have custody of my 9yr old grandson I keep the 2yr old cause his mother has no place to live and I want him to be safe. Anyway getting the car fixed was important so I can get me & my boys to Dr. appointments my son had got his jaw broke by a bunch of kids on Halloween and my 9yr old grandson goes to counseling for PTSD. With the $ I had I was gonna buy the kids some warm cloths a few toys, my son some warm socks and shirts, and warm socks and shirts for me cause my grandson gets upset if Santa doesn't bring me anything. I mostly was gonna buy food cause I only get paid once a month so I shop monthly. I also was gonna buy the boys snow boots my 9yr old grandson loves to play in the snow and has been wearing a pair of woman's rain boots a neighbor gave us so he would have something other than sneakers. He's been wearing them with alot of socks on. He's a good boy though he doesn't even mind I just feel bad sending him to school with sneakers on in the snow. I have to pay my rent on time cause I'm on section 8 and will get kicked off if it's not paid on time and I don't want to break my payment agreement with National Grid.
There are no fathers in the picture to help and the boys mother doesn't do to much either or they wouldn't be with me. Anyway I just want you to know we are a very happy family and make the best with what we have I try to teach my boys things aren't important people are!!! We do get alot of good hand me downs from extended family at times for which we are greatful!!! We just could use a little help right now to make our holiday a little brighter.
Thank You for reading this God Bless you Happy Holidays!
