TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)- After losing his job, Rex Foote can’t afford presents for his grand kids this Christmas.
"I didn’t have the money to buy them any presents. If anyone could be down at the bottom without living in the Mission or being out on the street, I’m down there," says Rex.
So, he wrote a letter to Santa Claus that read "this would be a bad year for Christmas for us. Hope you can help."
He mailed the letter to the US Post Office and addressed it to Santa Claus. An anonymous person from the Post Office sent it to the Topeka Rescue Mission and Barry Feaker opened it up.
