(WJBK) -

Latrice Arnold says she was told she could put anything on her wish list and the one thing she asked for was a bunk bed, because that's what her daughters really needed. But Arnold was devastated when she learned her Secret Santa was pulling out of the program just one day before Christmas.

"I just moved into my place, so the only thing I've been able to provide them with was an air mattress and I sleep on the floor," Arnold says. She says her social worker told her a Secret Santa had the girls covered.

"When I received the phone call I was so happy because, of course, I can't afford that right now. So it was like something that my children really need," she says.

But that excitement quickly went away.

"I called her yesterday to see what was going on, was it still happening, and then that's when I was told by her that, no, and the only explanation that I got was it was an outside vendor and, unfortunately, things happen like this sometimes and they bail out," she says.

That's when she called Fox 2 and we called Scott Bradley of Robinson Furniture.

"I've been trying to help out some families; we always do this every year. But we didn't get a lot of families this year that responded," Bradley says. Now, thanks to them, the girls will have the bunk bed they want and need delivered to their home just in time for Christmas.
