A wish for warmth for the winter months

By Lars Trodson

---- — Lisa is a single mom with three children.

She works while the children are in school, but the her pay is not a lot. She’s worried about having a little something for the children for Christmas. In particular, she hopes that he Santa Fund can help her get warm winter coats for the kids.

A trip to the thrift store didn’t help, she says. Nothing in the right sizes that would keep the little ones warm was available.

Michael is 9. Keisha is 8. And Tania is 6 years old.

It’s modest wish. But it would be appreciated all winter long.
