People Helping People


Quite often during this time of year we come across friends and neighbors who are struggling & may need just a little bit of help to get them through the holiday season.

People Helping People is our way assisting those families who may have fallen through the cracks of agencies that could normally help out. Our goal is to match up friends and neighbors in need with friends and neighbors who can help

If you know of a family in need this holiday season please nominate them below and if you want to help out, look below to see if there are services or items you can donate to help out said needy families…
