As some of you know my mom has cancer, and my life with my family is slowly falling apart in every sense of the way.
Well today i woke up early to try to get a free turkey from salvation army, but when I get there they tell me I'm in the wrong zip code...
So it appears our thanksgiving day celebration is ruined..dead..and just in shambles...I was able to buy some potatoes and gravy, and some cookie
mixes as i said in a different post but how the heck can i live in a zip code that is not served by salvation army?
I just don't understand anymore, and no i'm not on food stamps but money is very tight and I had my proof and everything and was turned away
This was a very humiliating day today and the way it looks i best be prepared for even more hardships
Going to call a few churches tomorrow and if that does not work, going into the garage to see what I can sell "if anything", this is seriously
insane, and I keep thinking, if I am having this much trouble..how may others are in the same position i am in?
I have a sims 3 for a nintendo 3ds, but I doubt anyone would trade me a turkey for a 9 buck game.
I am going to check craigslist, i have heard a lot of terror stories, but it won't be like I am answering the door, I will let my older brothers do
that, better to be safe then sorry.
Check your local food banks, then local Churches. A call to your local DFACS might also help as they keep lists of all local charities on hand.
Another though is to call your local TV news stations. It's a stretch but they sometimes are looking for human interest stories and, if you managed
to get a few minutes on television news, you might end up receiving help with many more of the issues that the future could hold.
television is a good idea but it is so embarrassing, mom has always been the one to protect us and this is probably hard on her more then me of
course, and that is a stupid this to say, of course it is harder on her.
Sorry, well i just posted an ad on craigslist, I was thinking about selling my grandmothers pearl ring I got after she passed, but I cannot do it.
also asked if anyone has a comfortable recliner for my mom, i want her to be sitting the whole time on Thanksgiving, we might be only having cookies
and potatoes and gravy, but I want her to be comfortable.
There are a lot of good hearted people still left in the world. Hopefully someone will come through for your family. If all else fails, there are
places that serve Thanksgiving meals to the poor. You can even have them make up a nice plate for your sick Mom.
In the meantime, your family needs to get on welare or some kind of assistance. HUGS!!!!!
