Giving back is at the heart of our lives!
Thank you continuing to join us!
2022 has started out another year of more unusual things! INFLATION! We're trying to get back to normal - whatever that may be. But we know that it's been rough for many others! Families are still struggling, some with income loss, most dealing with inflation at record levels, still others with social distancing - isolation from extended family & friends, and some with the health crisis. The challenges of 2022 have affected life as we know it in unexpected ways, and there is a continuous need for Holiday Heroes™.
Many community-based organizations are striving to meet the growing needs of the community. Charitable organizations such as food banks often see food shortages, the need for warm clothing and with our economic times being tight for many people, some are unsure where to turn.
We have put information on the local organizations below with links!
I've put together a list and links to a couple of wonderful local organizations that do so much for our community! We would love for you to join us in helping others!

The red kettles are gone for the season, but the need hasn't disappeared. They have so many wonderful programs to assist! From disaster relief to helping homeless, providing shelter and much more!Get Started
