Help us give hope to local families in need
We do Opie’s Angels a couple times a year because we believe in giving people a hand UP and not a hand out. We select one or more families to help out, from YOUR nominations, so we can give them some hope when they need it the most, and spread a little Christmas cheer.
If you know of a family that desperately needs help, click on the link below, and tell us their story.
Learn about who YOU helped in 2019
- Marie is a single mother who left an abusive relationship for the safety of herself and her children. She currently works three jobs to make ends meet, and it seems impossible to be able to afford added expenses like Christmas gifts for her kids. Thanks to Opie’s Angels, she’s able to buy gifts for her children making sure that they have a very merry Christmas.
- Mike and his daughter, Amanda, woke up on August 9th to find out that Amanda’s little sister, Alexis, had taken her own life. After Alexis’ passing, Mike and Amanda set up a foundation for suicide awareness in her name. Opie’s Angels donated $250 to the foundation to help raise awareness for the issue.
- Kristy has stage 3 breast cancer and has been going through chemotherapy for the past 6 months, and has to go through chemotherapy again. She is married, has three boys and is trying really hard to stay positive for them despite her health.
- Tammy has a four year old daughter who was recently diagnosed with neuroblastoma, and is currently undergoing chemotherapy and will have surgery and radiation therapy. Opie’s Angels provided Tammy’s daughter with a DVD player, some nightgowns, and some money so that she can have a happy holiday while undergoing treatment, as well as money for her older son who is being a strong big brother for his little sister.
