Dream Room Giveaway Tucson Winner: Maria Carrillo

1. Why is the nominee deserving of a Dream Room Giveaway?

Because of lack of money, we haven't been able to finish decorating our house and we'd liked to have it finished for Christmas when our family from Mexico comes to visit. We'd like the house ready for them - we haven't seen them in a long time. + Read More

2. Please describe the current housing condition or family situation that makes the nominee’s current home less than ideal for family gatherings.

The living and dining rooms need furniture and decorations to make it all be comfortable and so that the family feels welcome

3. Please tell us more about the nominee’s current constraints such as health or financial reasons, that prohibit him/her from creating a dream room for their family to enjoy.

The reasons are strictly financial. My husband's work has decreased and so there's less income but our health is good so we could help decorate our dream room

4. Please tell us what room of the residence the nominee would select as the Dream Room and why.

I'd like it to be our living room so that our guests feel welcome and loved in our home.

5. How has the nominee volunteered or participated in the community in which he/she resides?

I've been a volunteer in my kids' school, helping families that don't speak English, translating at conferences and helping them understand how to help their children with homework

6. Is there any other pertinent information that you would like to share as to why the nominee is deserving of winning the Dream Room Giveaway?

Our family lives far away from us in Mexico and it's been a long time since we've spent Christmas together. It's taken a lot of effort but they are going to be with us for the holidays and part of our house is not ready to receive them in a way they deserve - we want them to feel welcome and comfortable.
