One of the families who is counting on those donations was recommended by a Tallahassee school teacher. She noticed the children coming to school in clothes that were too big, too small or too worn.
That single mother needs coats and clothes for all three of her children, two boys who both wear size 12 and a daughter who wears a size 10.
They need food for their pantry, and beyond a watch for herself, the mother hopes someone will donate a bike or two for her children to share.
You can help this family or any one of 800 others by taking donations to the Christmas Connection at 1000 West Tharpe Street from noon to 6 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. This is case number 51.
