This Christmas we needed help and you were there. Thanking you for painting smiles on my kids’ faces – you can’t imagine what a difference that makes to a mom.

WINS made me realize I don’t need to struggle to meet my basic needs and that there are people that care enough to help a small family get back on their feet. Thanks for helping us when we needed it the most.

Today, I have a full fridge, clothing for my children, and a little less stress. Knowing families can come out on the other side strong and kicking is really inspiring and helps me see the light at the end of the tunnel.
