Medical bills leave no money for children's presents

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.

The Brighter Christmas Fund is a 501(c)(3) charity, and tax-deductible donations, which also help other families in need on the Mid-Shore, may be sent to The Brighter Christmas Fund, c/o The Star Democrat, P.O. Box 600, Easton, MD 21601. Donations also may be made online via credit card or Paypal at Click the “Donate” button. For more information about the Fund, call 410-200-1884.
