SUBs for Santa
Imagine you are 6 years old and in first grade. You live with Mom and your two older siblings. Dad is gone, or only there occasionally. Mom is struggling to work and keep food on the table, a roof over your head, and clothes on your back. You are wearing hand me down clothes from your older sibling. The shirt is too big, the pants as well. Even the shoes don’t fit right. When Mom has a few extra dollars, you can go to the thrift store and buy something that fits better.
But you can’t get underwear at the thrift store. And even if you could, how would you feel wearing underwear someone else has worn?
How does this affect you?
Monday was a beautiful day – a great day to go outside at recess and play kickball with your classmates. But you decide it is safer to stay inside. Why? Your pants are too big, and you don’t have a belt or decent underwear. And you live in fear that your pants might slip down and the other children would see you and make fun of you. So it’s better not to take the chance.
No child should have to suffer this indignity.
So, Santa decided to collect new socks, underwear, and belts for children of elementary and preschool age. They will be distributed to schools with high levels of free or reduced cost lunches as well as shelters and Thrift stores.
It has been a long running story that Santa delivers socks and underwear to children that may not believe in him anymore.
And sometimes that is exactly what they need. Won’t you help Santa help these children?
