In addition to what is listed in our database, we have received information from local churches and other organizations who are hosting programs this year. Whether you are looking for assistance or searching for a good place to make a holiday donation, our Holiday Giving Programs list is a good place to start. All locations followed by an asterisk (*) have been verified this year. Those that could not be reached by phone have a notation reflecting that we are awaiting confirmation.
