Charities To Help With Christmas

I have noticed many readers asking for monetary help with Christmas. Please don't think I'm being insensitive. 20 Years ago, I was that person too. There are several agencies that can help you. Please check with your local Salvation Army agency, they put on a toy program that you can sign up for. You get to choose some new and some gently used items along with clothing items too. Check with your local churches and food pantries. Public aid offices may be able to give you some guidance on programs. Our schools also know which families are have a bit more need than others. Food share programs and angel ministries can assist you with groceries. The local township supervisor or mayor can also help. I wish you all the best.

I cant say enough good things about SHARE. It is for everyone regardless of their income. The food is good, generous and nutritious. You pay for it, but get far more than you would in the grocery store for that amount of money especially around holiday time. IN my area a college administrator, a college professor, and a church secretary all partake in the benefits of this program. I heartily recommend it.

I did a Google search under SHARE food program for my state.

warm regards,

I agree that share is a generous deal.

The food is better than I could afford otherwise. The food is very fresh and of top quality.

I would like to give feedback to those who keep saying "go to the salvation army" or to the "red cross". Unless you are in this position and know what is going on, then you need to know that a lot of these agencies don't have the program due to lack of donations. The demand is EXTREMELY higher than usual.

For all people who are saying call the Salvation Army, Good Luck cause I can't even get in touch with them nor or they accepting people who need help with gifts for their kids unless your homeless or fostering kids and Angle Tree is mainly for kids who's parents are in prison. All churches I call either will not call back or is stopped accepting applications here in Georgia. Now What?

I agree with the posters on share/angel ministries. I know that ours will do a Christmas dinner package for $25 that includes a turkey, a pie, vegetables, etc. Food stamps/SNAP are accepted at share/Angel ministries. So it doesn't hurt to check out the share/angel ministries site.

For those who can't get help with gifts and decorations, Go to thrift shops, dollar stores for items and always look at thrifty fun for good money saving gift ideas. Craigs list also has a free section on their site.

You could also try your local fire dept. they always have things for kids big and small for Christmas in every area. All the larger churches and a lot of the small ones will take on the task for you if you'll just ask. Don't be afraid to ask, just call and ask what they can do to help and tell them of your situation. Caring usually starts with the needy person telling someone who cares.
