Carla and her daughter have so many needs. Where does one start?
Because of financial difficulties they were living in a hotel. Then, just over a year ago Carla suffered a heart attack. Though she survived, a challenging life got harder.
Health issues made it difficult to keep a job. With no job there was no income, and thus an inability to pay rent.
“We got evicted a couple of months ago, and now are currently living with a friend. We lost most of our clothes moving around,” Carla said.
The Goodfellow Fund can help. The Star-Telegram charity has been helping families like hers during the holidays for more than a century.
This year the fund is providing $50 gift cards so parents like Carla can get their children some warm clothing or shoes.
“Getting help for her would relieve some stress,” Carla said.
