Breaking and Entering Christmas 2017

Breaking and Entering 2017


Just a year ago, this single mom was working at a dead end job, making minimum wage, with no plans for her future.  She has a four year old son, whom she loves more than anything else in this world. 

Her living arrangements were holding her back , slowly destroying her self esteem, but suppling the basic needs her son required.  Until one day, the light bulb went on and this mom realized that was best for her son was to better herself. So she moved out, got a slightly better job and began working hard so she could move up faster, make more money and get her own apartment.  But she wasn’t done yet!  She knew that in order to be a great role model for her son she had to continue her education. So she decided to go back to school and graduated with a 4.0 GPA while holding down two jobs.  Mom is not done with school just yet.  She’s on her way to becoming a nurse! 

All of this in order to provide her son with a better life.  

It hasn’t been easy, working 2 jobs, going to school, being a single mom, paying all the bills and racking up student loans, but she’s doing it. Borrowing furniture to furnish her apartment, getting help from family and friends to ensure her son has what he needs and she can stay in school. 

This Christmas, we want to give mom some breathing room.   A few days, weeks, maybe a month, where she doesn’t have to worry about how she’s going to buy food, pay bills, keep gas in the car, buy her books for school, pay tuition and put Christmas presents under the tree for her son.
