UP: Thousands of people in this area benefit from Christmas charity each year. But the charities themselves need assistance as they prepare to bring holiday cheer to others. Donations of items such as non-perishable food, clothing, toys, gas cards, even diapers. Monetary donations are also welcome. Throughout the area, needy families can be "adopted" for the holidays by a business, church group or family. Donors then provide the family with Christmas gifts and food. Others charities have "trees," where donors can select a person or family to help. There are many ways to give this season. Need to know where to direct your generosity? Check last Friday's Courier for a list of holiday charities.
