Family Wish List: Justin and Jillian shop with Nichole

This year, we once again asked you to nominate a family that could use our help for our FOX21 Family Wish List campaign. After going through all of the nominated families, five were chosen. We teamed up with Super Target and took the families on a shopping spree for the holiday gifts and groceries that they may need. 

When FOX21 Chief Meteorologist Justin Chambers and SOCO CW Star Jillian Anderson met Nichole Anderson at Super Target, they asked why she thought she was nominated.

“She’s seen me go through a lot of struggles,” Nichole said about the person who nominated her. “She’s been there for me, helping me move and…so many people have been there to support me as [I] made the transition to single parenting.”

Then the fun began. It was time to shop.

Nichole picked out a Pokemon shooter, Minecraft LEGOs, and other toys. Once the shopping cart was full, we asked her what impact the trip will have on her family this Christmas.

“The kids will be excited,” Nichole said. “They said, ‘don’t worry, mom, if you can’t afford it because Santa Claus will get it for us.’ So thanks for being Santa.”

The saying “it’s better to give than receive” could not be more true.
