“It is tough for the children, and Christmas is about the children,” she said. “I am hoping every angel gets taken off the mirror.”

Sarbou-Jubert stressed that there is nothing extraordinary about the list, besides the fact they are asking for basic needs. But, she said, they should have other items too.

They need to have a good Christmas, which will also help their parents. This would allow them to see the joy on their children’s faces Christmas morning, Sarbou-Jubert said.

“I think when you get to a certain age you start wondering why you are here and what it is about,” she said. “Taking care of the kids of the next generation is what it is about, whether they are yours or not.”

Anyone who wants to help can call Global Fitness and Martial Club at (518) 297-3488.
