Local Families Of Fallen Soldiers Need Your Help To Make Sure Military Children Get Presents

KHQ.COM - Please do what you can to help military families in our area. This morning KHQ Local News reporter Alex Rozier received the following note from the mother of a fallen soldier. We wanted to pass it along to you:

Hi Alex,

My name is Jenifer Gorman and I am a Gold Star Mother that volunteers down at the National Guard Readiness Center for Kim Cole. Kim is the Family Assistant Coordinator for the National Guard as well as a Gold Star Mother. Each year we receive names of military families that are in need of assistance during the holiday season, and it is our job to try and make sure that they receive that assistance. 

We put word out to local military supporters and they help with gifts and food. This year we have several families that have more than 4 children, and more families then we can get assistance to.  I was wondering if you could put out the word that there are military families in need, and if anyone wants to adopt a family to contact us down at the Readiness Center. 

The biggest need is for the larger families and older children, and any assistance would be greatly appreciated. My phone number is 869-2222, and Kim Cole's phone number is 844-1115. I look forward to hearing from you.
