Sharon sent a message to Antonio Urcelay Chairman and CEO, Toys R Us, Inc. – email address that said:
My name is Sharon and I currently live in a shelter in Mount Vernon Plaza in Mount Vernon, NY. The reason I live here is because I can't afford to get an apartment with the services they are offering. I suffer from mental and physical disability which does not allow me to work. My son was diagnosed with lead poisoning at 2 years old and has been going through a lot of therapy. He is currently 5 years old now and is living with me here at the shelter. The reason I am trying to contact you is because he recently asked me to write a letter to Santa and the items he is asking are way above my budget. We have been going through a lot here living in a small room. He constantly asks me when will he have his own room. I cry everyday because I can't give him that. I am asking to see if you would donate some of the items he has asked from Santa. I just don't want to keep letting him down. He asked Santa for a PS4 and some Lego marvel super heroes sets which are very expensive. I don't expect for a response from you but maybe just a little help since I am on a real small budget. I do not have money for Christmas presents and do not know what to do. All I am asking is for some help, maybe you can help me.
The address above is a shelter called Vernon Plaza if you need to verify it. It is a family shelter. I am grateful to have what we have so far which is a roof over our heads but I just want to give him some things from his list to Santa of items he is asking.
Please help me out this year and Im hoping for a better one next year.
Thank you so much.
