Help complete the Negron family’s Season for Caring wish list

This week we’re highlighting the remaining wishes of the families featured in the 2017 Season for Caring program.

The Negron family, who lost their father to a car accident last December, got some things for Christmas such as wrestling items for 10-year-old Luis and a computer for Samanta, 25, and Mayleth, 18. The girls need help with tuition assistance, and the family also needs a used car, repairs to their existing vehicle, another computer and a math tutor for Luis.
