    hi , my son cameron is going in second grade and he is 7,and a real trooper ,had surgery when he was a baby for his heart,and he lives to serve the lord!My wife and i been married for 15 years and this has been the roughest,she works full-time and i cant get any unemployment or any type of help!But we know God has his reason,So on this note, I think my son and family would be a good winner of this prize, we could so use the backpack and 200 gift card for clothes and shoes,It would help us out so much and we know we are blessed everyday and we know GOD HAS US COVERED AND we listen to radio station faithfully and we go to all cookie break when we can,So Thank you in advance and hopefully will be hearing from you soon,The Zinks

    Hi my name is Luz. My family could really use the back to school backpack. My husband and I are going through a rough spot. on the verge of eviction from our home. Both our vehicles are in really bad shape. we have spoken to our pastor but there is little to no help. we have 5 children.
    This year our twins are starting kindergarten and we just do not have enough money for all of them. We could really use the help.

    thank you and God Bless!
