Chelsea Pfau, 20, was Christmas shopping at the Father Fred Foundation for a Toys for Tots gift for her 14-month-old daughter. She works at the Laughing Buddha, but earns minimum wage and has college debt to pay back before returning to school for a cosmetology degree. "These places give you hope not to give up and keep going. Things will get better eventually," said Pfau.
