Paula is a proud single mother of two children. She works hard at a local restaurant and every penny she earns goes to paying her bills.
Her only family member giving her assistance, her father, recently passed away. Her mother is in prison, and she has no brothers or sisters she can turn to.
Even though Christmas is over, she still would like to do something nice for her children.
They do well in school, and they deserve some holiday cheer. They need new winter clothes and also could use a bike or some board games.
Assistance with the groceries would a be a big help, as well.
