Christmas Charities?

I need help with Christmas gifts for my 11 year old son. Can someone please suggest numbers and organizations that can help? I couldn't find any help on this site.

In my part of the country the charities that help with things like that have already purchased the gifts and distributed them. These charities vary from city to city and state to state. Sometimes they change what category of people they help from year to year.

Look in your phone book and call the different charities listed and ask them if they can help. At this late date talk to your pastor, your church might be able to help, but even for churches it is getting kind of late, because when something like this comes up they usually take up a special offering for a needy member of the congregation.


However at they age your son is he should understand if times are hard right now. You can buy a t-shirt at WalMart for no more than $10.00 and at this time that should be enough. No kid needs more than one gift from their parents and I would assume they will get gifts from grandparents and aunts and uncles. Also you should plan ahead, if you are hard up start shopping several months in advance.

I start in January and have been done for at least two months and everything was wrapped and under the tree right after Thanksgiving. No kid needs what they see on TV and they don't need designer labels.
