The Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund provides advocacy, education, information and financial assistance for the uninsured needs of families caring for terminally, critically and chronically ill, seriously disabled or severely injured children.

By working directly with healthcare professionals social workers, case managers, nurses and therapists throughout PA, NJ and DE, patients and their families needs are made known to the Fund through a simple application process.  Requests for assistance are generally handled within 24 to 72 hours in the form of payments to creditors for bills or the donation of goods. This simple method of operation assures eligibility for assistance and avoids the misappropriation of funds.

Name: Christmas Unlimited

The Christmas Unlimited method of distributing gifts is what sets it apart from other holiday programs.  The process includes the following elements:
  • Applications for assistance are distributed by over sixty community service agencies in El Paso and Teller counties
  • Clients select a day and time they can be at the Distribution Center
  • An Invitation is sent to each family confirming their shopping appointment
  • We ask clients to not bring their children to the Distribution Center
  • The Distribution Center is set-up like a retail store
    - Volunteers assume retail store jobs
    - Gift items have a price tag (although there is no charge)
    - Parents are issued a "shopping pass" giving them points to "spend" as they would   dollars
    - The total number of points is determined by the number of children
    - At check-out clients receive a stuffed toy, a book, stocking stuffers, and other items  as 
      posted for each of the children  "

So many of us are in need of help for Christmas this year . I know . Last year I didn't ( I didn't have the money )buy any presents for my daughter.

I have many Christmas pages for all of us to use for assistance. They go all the way back to Christmas 2006.

 Some are for free and low-cost presents and stocking stuffers. Some are for Christmas thoughts and some are for Christmas Charities to go to for food , presents and more.

 Please go to my home page and scroll down . You will see links to all of these pages.

I sincerely hope that we all get the desires of our hearts this year , and so do our families.

Hello I am a 34 year old single dad of two wonderful girls 6 and 12. I am on a fixed budget to say the least and usually pay for Christmas last minute out of my last two checks before Christmas. I try hard not to ask for help. This year I got sick last Monday and got very sick I was off work all week they wouldn't let me work sick. I don't want to ask for help but my girls are wonderful kids the best two girls a dad can ask for and they have been through so much with their mother. I have had custody for 5 years with their mother filing every six months like clockwork she wants custody but don't want to get herself off drugs and get a place to live. Long story short does anyone know of any help in the Virginia area I've looked with no luck thank you so much for any time and help merry Christmas

Hello I am in north new jersey and I am a single father of three beautiful girls ages 4, 11,12 and I have been in a rut for awhile. Due to my past criminal offense which occurred when I was 19 and I am now 27 I have had a really hard time getting work. The last job I held was when my grandfather was a supervisor for a moving company and I worked there until he retired in 2009. I have gotten many interviews but to no avail because my record prevents me from getting a job. I still to this day try and try but this will be the first Christmas I cant afford to get them anything.I was doing things I shouldn't have been and decided to go the clean route and cant seem to get a break. I don't want to see them sad or upset and don't want to feel less as a man I need a miracle this Christmas.

NEEDYINVA
Hi. My 63 yr old mom is in central virginia on a limited income raising 3 beautiful great grandchildren, all boys and ages 6, 5 and 3. She also takes care of her bed ridden mother that's 90 on a ventilator. She fought to rescue them from being fostered due to neglect by both children's parents. The youngest suffered a burn that was severe but not reported and was suffering Malnutrition, the middle child also suffered from malnutrition and the oldest with severe asthma that was not being managed to the point of 9 hospital admissions by 4yr old. All three were subjected to mental, physical and emotional abuse by the moms new boyfriend before being Their care is a lot to manage which is why I have moved in. Although I know they are in a better place it has taken its toll on her. In the last year she has began to suffer from a great deal of pain and a very pronounced limp. She's in need of a hip and knee replacement but hasn't been approved for disability or any health insurance yet she keeps moving for everyone else sake. These children deserve a blessing for christmas and most of all it would be one less worry for their great grandmother. I wont bother with specifics because ANYONE with ANYTHING to bless would be a great help.
