TREMONTON, Utah — This Christmas season will be challenging for Christen Younger of Tremonton. Her husband Tommy died unexpectedly last August in an industrial accident.
Now, Christen is raising their a nine-year-old daughter, Elianna, alone.
Christen works as a teaching assistant at a middle school in Tremonton, where her positive influence makes a difference.
Elliana is a star student who reads at an accelerated level.
They were nominated for a FOX 13 Dream Team surprise by a family member who told us there might not be a Christmas tree at the Younger residence this year.
On a recent snowy day, we knocked on their door to deliver a small Christmas tree, along with a few other gifts, including the surprise that our Dream Team partners have paid Christen’s rent for the next three months.
We hope the gifts help to make the holidays a little easier for Christen and Elliana, and provide them with a good start to the new year.
If you know someone who could use a visit from the Dream Team, fill out the nomination form. Tell us the story of the person you are nominating, as it might be told on television, and suggest a gift.
