Through the support of the community, we are able to provide people in need with holiday food and gifts, enabling them to stretch their resources and maintain financial stability. Please brighten the holiday season for the people we serve by contributing to our Holiday Drives:
Thanksgiving Food Drive
Holiday Gift Drive
