2014 Updated Holiday Resource Guide

candle03The holidays are coming soon, and there is great need in our area for “the kindness of strangers”.  Below is a Holiday Resource Guide where those in need can turn for dinners (Thanksgiving and Christmas), food baskets, and gifts.  The Guide contains information, by county, where community members can go for help, including addresses, phone numbers, and event times.  We are grateful to live in a community where so many organizations and individuals step forward to help when there is a need.

Last week we posted a list of resources available to those in need in our community, and since then several changes have been reported to us.  We have updated our list with this new information, and uploaded an updated copy.  Hopefully this new information will be of value.
