The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund recently featured this Children’s Aid story about Nicole Thornton and how assistance helped her and children cope after the death of her husband four months ago. Below is an excerpt from the original article.

In November 2009, Mr. Thornton joined a life counseling program at the Children’s Aid Society, one of seven agencies supported by The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund. After his death, the agency contributed $1,000 to funeral expenses, $304.15 for phone and cable bills, and $368.79 for an electric bill. The family also received one month’s rent, $525, and gift cards to buy school clothes for the children.
