As some of you may know, I am a Spanish language medical interpreter for work comp patients. One of my patients is head of household and he injured his shoulder while working. He has four kids (girl/age 7, boy/age 9, boy/age 13 (who is deaf), and girl/age 16. He had surgery two weeks ago and he has not had an income now for several weeks. His work comp money has not starting rolling in. Having been on work comp myself, I know how that is!
I am asking for your help because otherwise, I don't know what kind of Christmas they will have. I recently referred them to a food bank, but when they went, the food bank is not taking new applications. I felt so bad!
So, I would like to ask that you either bring a toy or two and I will collect and put a package together for them and deliver to them that day.
Another option if you can't on Sunday the 16th, you can go to my SendOutCards site right away, purchase a gift card of the denomination of your choice, mail to me and I will deliver to them on the 16th so they can buy what they need/want for their kids. (I can't provide their information because it is HIPAA protected).
On your greeting card, you can add:
Godinez Family and add your message.

If you have any other ideas, have questions or anything, please feel free to call/text or email me: [masked]
I plan to take pictures (if they allow it) to show the joy on their faces when they receive this surprise!
I appreciate everything you do to make the world a better place!
