ROBERTSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Robertson County girl wrote a unique letter to Santa Claus this Christmas.
Jaelyn Floyd’s home in Cedar Hill burned down on Oct. 22. No one was injured in the blaze but the house was a total loss.
So when the 12-year-old was writing her letter to Santa this year, she didn’t ask for toys, video games or clothes.
Instead, she asked for materials so her father could rebuild the house.
“Dear Santa, (It’s me again, Jaelyn). My Christmas list has changed now. Instead of all the things I asked for, now I would like to have cement blocks, wood, wireing [sic], plumbing stuff, heaters and a refrigerator and windows and doors, please,” the letter reads.
Jaelyn’s dad, Jason Floyd, works in construction, but he can’t afford materials to start rebuilding right now.
The girl’s father got emotional when he read the letter.
“I guess Jaelyn took it upon herself to call out for help from anybody that could help,” said Floyd.
The Floyds are staying with family in Florida until they can figure out what to do next.
Jaelyn hopes Santa, or anybody else, can help her and her family get back home to Tennessee.
The letter continued, “I miss my school (CMS) and friends. So if you can, please help. I want to come back home. Please help us rebuild our home, please.”
Jason Floyd said he could use any extra building supplies that someone could spare. He can be reached at Gospelsinger263@gmail.com.
