Dear Portland Press Herald Toy Fund,
My husband and I have five children. We both work, but both of our jobs have cut our hours. My husband now is working two days a week and I am only scheduled for 12 hours a week. This is hard. Our children would really like to get some presents for Christmas, but we can’t buy presents for them. Thank you!
