Sam and Zoey have had numerous financial setbacks this year. Zoey has been in treatment and recently got out. They have six kids and are living with her parents at the moment.

“Our biggest challenge, like many others right now are financial,” Zoey said. “A Sub for Santa will help give some gifts to my kids and bring happiness to them on Christmas day.”

She added that her kids are excited about having the family together because they were not together last year.

With six children in the mix, it might be fun for two families to join together as Santa’s helpers for this family.

The oldest child is an 11.6-years-old female. She needs jeans, shirts and a hoodie. Her pant size is 7 and shirt size small. Her shoe size is 7 and her favorite colors are light purple and white.
