The Finalists:

The Braxton Family

Nominated by – Lowery, Brooklyn, Deb & Mary

  • Crystal Braxton has had 3 different cancers and undergone multiple surgeries. She has had to miss a lot of work causing a financial strain. This family is so loving and caring. They are really great people and it would be such a great help if this family could be helped out.
  • Crystal has been through three cancer surgeries. This has forced her to miss many days of work. The HVAC system in their family home has broken, and they cannot afford to fix it. It would be so helpful for the family to get another system. They are a great and deserving family.
  • My coworker Crystal has missed a lot of work because of cancer. Her HVAC no longer works and they are financially unable to replace it, she and her husband are hard workers and deserve a little help they have 2 children
  • Crystal has had 3 surgeries for cancer and is struggling financially. They have 2 children and their HVAC NEEDS REPLACED. It is not working. She has missed a lot of work because of her illnesses. Please consider this family.

The Fleuriet Family

Nominated by – The Mirek Family

  • This is the sweetest little family. They just had a new baby and they have a three-year-old as well. The father is a police officer for the Wilmington police department and the mother is a therapist. Their daycare bill is outrageous for two kids, and this is not a fancy frills daycare, they are stacking their workdays because they can only afford part-time for their kids. Between that and the rising cost of food and bills….they could really use some help with a new HVAC system. They have had theirs serviced several times and told they need to replace it however, they do not currently have the money to do so, so they keep paying to extend its life as long as possible. But the system could go out any day now, which would be terrible for their family’s financial health. They are constantly of service to other families and their community. They have always shown up for my family day or night. I try and show up for them in any way I can, but we’re in a similar boat. It would be really nice if somebody could show up for their family this holiday season. I know so many people who they have helped by being a friend, and community servants, and my family’s life is better because they are in it, they are family and deserve this.

The Parker Family

Nominated by Laci Parker

  • My name is Laci and I have a three-year-old daughter, Finley, as well as 4 animals (two cats and two dogs). I was born and raised in Wilmington, at Cape Fear Hospital. Two months ago, my AC Unit stopped working. I had to pay someone $300 to come out and rig it to work. During this process, we realized my HVAC unit is TWENTY-FIVE years old! I, am currently going through a disability case due to a failed back surgery and have a mountain’s worth of medical debt due to having three pulmonary embolisms, two DVTs, and cerebral venous thrombosis twice – all in the past 11 years and I’m only 34. I’m currently only able to work part-time right now, which barely covers our necessities. I’m so stressed that my system is going to die when it gets super cold this fall/winter. Please consider us, we would be so very thankful and I could really use a win for my family. Thank you for your generosity to our community.
