To get the most for our money and to help meet the needs of our families, we would greatly appreciate monetary donations by November 15th. Doing so will help us plan our budget more effectively, allowing us to get the most for our money by purchasing sale items; ultimately helping us meet the needs of our families facing hardships.
Volunteers are needed to assist in a number of ways to keep this program running. We are looking for individuals and/or groups to assist in distributing collection boxes to local businesses. For more information on how you can help please email us at HolidayforGiving@yahoo.com
