APE’s Caring Christmas Project

November 20th, 2017 Contributed by: james

The APE’s are joining together to spread some Christmas cheer this year by helping a local family in need.  The family recently (11/17/17) suffered the death of the father/husband.  He was the sole breadwinner for the surviving family.  The mother has been a stay at home mom taking care of their youngest boy who has a long term illness.  The mother has 4 children: 14 year old girl, 10 year old boy, 5 year old girl and 3 year old boy.  The mother will have no financial means to make Christmas happen for the family this year in trying to cover the family budget and funeral expenses for the husband/father.  We APE’s want to make sure this family experiences the joy of Christmas again!  We are hosting a fundraising campaign from ( 11/ 20 /2017 - 12/ 08 /2017 ) to purchase Christmas gifts for this family on our APE’s PayPal website: http://www.riverapes.org/paypal-1.html
