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.”
Never miss a local story.
