A LITE-FM Christmas Wish for Craig
LITE-FM's Christmas Wish is back, thanks to our friends at Pioneer Federal Credit Union.
Throughout Christmas Wish season, we've shared a few stories about single moms who went from just barely holding things together for their families to being in need of an extra hand up when the pandemic hit. This morning, we met a single dad with a similar story.
Emily introduced us to her brother-in-law, Craig, who's raising four teenagers on his own. As a single parent, the holidays always put a pinch on his finances but this year has been exceptionally hard. He ended up losing his car and was unemployed for a little while. He recently started a new job, but is walking to and from work every day.
His two older teens are trying to wrap up high school this year, but are also working to help dad pay the rent and care for their younger siblings. They're also walking to and from their jobs. It's been a trying year for the whole family and they really needed something to give them a little help.
We shared her story with our elves at Group One Sotheby's Realty. When they heard it, they pulled all their agents together and said "Craig sounds like such a good dad. Let's pull Christmas together for him and his kids!"
After ANOTHER HUGE shopping trip and an afternoon of wrapping gifts, they quite literally stuffed our Treasure Valley Subaru delivery sleigh with gifts for Brittany and her boys!
You can hear and watch the surprise in this video!
