Cherise Turner is not one to ask others for help, but she is thankful for what she received as a recipient of this year’s Reindeer Gang.
A single mother, Turner’s income as a counselor and student adviser for Goodwill Industries isn’t enough to care for her three children the way she would like.
Turner said the family received $220, which she will use to buy Christmas dinner. Also, several people dropped off bags of clothes and shoes that were all the right sizes.
“Even though I can’t give them what I feel is a good Christmas, at least they got something,” Turner said. “I gave them one gift apiece, and some people can’t even give their kids that. So, I’m lucky. I’m blessed.”
