This holiday season is harder for many Massachusetts families, including a North Shore family whose Dad broke his back in a serious car accident in 2005. The Boston Globe reports that the mother wrote to Globe Santa recounting the life-altering head-on collision that left her husband disabled and unable to work.
According to the mother’s letter, her two daughters, ages 6 and 9, have had to take on many of the household chores because of the chronic back pain that resulted from the car crash. Though the mother has been working as a waitress, the family says it is struggling to make ends meet on one income and a small insurance settlement.
This family will be among approximately 30,000 receiving gifts from Globe Santa. The Globe reports record numbers of requests this year, and urges individuals and groups to contribute to Globe Santa to ensure that all eligible Eastern Massachusetts families receive a visit from Santa this year.
