Please try no contact non-profits in your area. Also check out your local Salvation Army for Free Christmas, Thanksgiving and Holiday Meals provided on each holiday for low income families, seniors, and the homebound. Support is also offered for families and individuals who are hungry and have no place to go for a hot meal. In addition to offering food, most centers surround guests with love and compassion as they serve the meal. Seniors and the homebound can often have a holiday meal delivered to them, if they can’t shop or prepare one on their own.
Angel Tree Program was created primarily to help less fortunate children and seniors and to provide them with free personalized gifts and necessities. It is a volunteer driven program for those who would otherwise receive very little or nothing during the holiday season. The Salvation Army Angel Tree program provides free toys, gifts, clothing, and more at Christmas. Some centers will also offer visits to nursing home residents and the homebound.
Adopt-a-Family is another holiday program that allows lower income families and their children the ability to request help. The client will create a list of that they need (such as clothing or household items) and members of the community can volunteer to purchase those items. The Salvation Army will match the needy with donors, which may include a local business or just an individual. Many children receive free gifts, toys, or school supplies from this service.

Brittney, Like Ashley posted, please contact toys for tots. They are a wonderful organization. I am sorry you are in this position. Our governing bodies should be helping us, but with a republican house and a democratic senate, I am afraid it is going to be a "pissing match". Who cares about the public they are supposed to be serving? They don't have to worry as they have comfy jobs with real paychecks.
There are a lot of people in the world and life can be overwelming and sometimes we make serious mistakes just so we can feed our little ones .
You can call down to your county office for resources.
last year we had frozen lasagna. it was great. maybe this will allow us to focus on what these holidays should mean. what we truly have to be grateful for. we have been very poor. but that didn't ruin Christmas.
I think it is better to stay home. To protect family.
