LITE-FM Delivers Christmas Hope to Recently Widowed Meridian Mom of 4
LITE-FM's Christmas Wish is back, thanks to our friends at Pioneer Federal Credit Union.
Kimberly's letter about her friend Robin broke our hearts. Robin recently had to step into the role of "single mom." Her husband had been courageously battling cancer, but ultimately lost the fight and passed away in March.
Robin has four kids. Her oldest son already graduated from college, her middle son is going to school for nursing with the goal of becoming a nurse practitioner and her twin girls who have special needs are wrapping up their senior year. She's got a lot on her plate while still grieving the loss of her husband.
Kimberly knows that this family that's experienced so much loss this year could use some support paying for the essentials and a chance to build some happy memories during this first difficult Christmas without Dad. Robin's trying to make all of that happen on a teacher's salary and it hasn't been easy.
We were happy to step in, deliver a little something to give her a reason to smile during the holidays and let her know that a lot of people are there for her during this tough season she's in right now. Her friends had to trick her into staying home, while our Chief Delivery Elf, Brittiany, headed her way in the Treasure Valley Subaru Delivery Sleigh.
