Here’s another from yesterday’s craigslist..

Saw a wonderful ad on “Free” where a family welcomed people with no power into their homes and I would like to offer the same.

I live in Westboro. Have a small place but certainly plenty of heat and food to help.

Please contact me if you need somewhere to shower, food, laundry, internet and phone access.

And then there’s this one:

If you are a single parent and have been hit by the storm or the
economy and are unable to obtain a Christmas dinner, I am giving away a
turkey with fixings. If you are unable to cook it yourself, I will cook
it for you. Free local delivery. (I am a single parent of two myself
and I know first hand how tough things can be) If you are interested,
please send me an email.

I just want to bring a little joy back into the holidays.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

And this one:
