The second family consists of a single mother (Patricia) and her 4 children, as well as 2 of her younger siblings (13 and 15 years old). Her 11 year old daughter was recently walking home with her brother when she was struck by a car. She has been undergoing continual medial treatment for her injuries. Currently, she is in the hospital undergoing surgery. Patricia lost her job while her daughter was in intensive care. Three of the children in the home do not have beds and the officers are trying to arrange to have bunk beds delivered for the holidays. The children have only minimal clothes and very few toys at home. The officers are hoping the extra help will bring joy to this very deserving family this holiday season.
