Laura and her husband David are separated, and she is supporting their four children on her own. She recently missed six weeks of work due to COVID-19, and now David has tested positive.
Bills are piling up, and Laura isn’t sure how she will manage to provide Christmas for the children.
Your donation to The Star Democrat’s Brighter Christmas Fund could help Laura and her children during the holiday season.
