Many families in the Riverbend area continue to face increasing hardships, and your generous support to Community Christmas goes a long way towards helping families have a brighter holiday.
For more than 25 years, United Way and The Telegraph have partnered to meet the needs of local families through Community Christmas. We are confident that with your support, we can once again help more than 6,000 people through the program this year thanks to your kindness.
We will be collecting items for people of all ages, including: toys, new coats, non-perishable food items, household items, new socks, blankets, stocking caps, gloves and mittens. More than 100 boxes will be placed throughout the community at businesses and churches in early November to collect these items. Monetary donations will be used to purchase items mentioned above that are in short supply.
