Helping Hands for the Holidays

We have gotten an absolute litany of phone calls about places to help out during the holidays, so in our efforts to always be a resource to our community, we have developed the “Helping Hands for the Holidays” list of member nonprofits who have specific needs through the end of the year!  We are happy to field your calls, but these folks have the answers! Whether you want to wrap gifts, serve meals, deliver meals or sort toys, there is a place you are needed!!
