Harlem woman needs help after job loss, eviction

  • Follow Metro

A Harlem mother is struggling with the challenges of a job loss, home eviction and ill children.

Her children lost what toys they had during the eviction, and she also lost many possessions.

“I’m not sure how I
will be able to give my
kids a Christmas,” she writes.

The Augusta Chronicle Empty Stocking Fund has helped people such as this for 82 years. Last year, the charity raised more than $104,000 that helped children and families across the region.
