Sites Offering Christmas Help December 04, 2007 1:53 PM

Many are in need this season and I'm trying to help as many as I can but my own income is so low. I just saw a post in a group I'm in (http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=10537&pst=1075463&archival=&posts=9) with some sites. I hope some of these help. (Below copied out of the group)

For families in Ohio only

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ohiochristmaswish/?yguid=238207091

And if you are a member of ebay they offer help in the chat area go to  giving board, they post off and on throughout the day as to how to request help.

Good luck.

Another suggestion, post on your local freecycle group, call local churches, salvation army, toy time or toys for tots.

You might also ask at schools , I adopted a child last year from stephanies pre school. They just add the childs name to a tree and I bought a gift and took it to the school.

If you have an active case at Children services, They can be a huge help too.

And your local newspaper may be able to help, Ours has a brighten a christmas section. The salvation army collects gifts for Families in need.
