CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY ASSISTANCE
If you suspect you are going to need help to provide Christmas for your children, do NOT wait until the last minute!
Volunteers have families also and need to have time in their schedules to provide for their own families.

Please make arrangements with assistance organizations NO LATER than December 1st at the latest!! Many have cutoff dates sooner than this (especially in this recession)!

And once you ARE on your feet, please remember to give back as you are able.

Email: info@theinfocenter.info
Website: http://www.theinfocenter.info
The Information Center, Inc. is able to help, with the generous support of our donors, through two avenues.
Adopt-A-Family: Donors are supplied with the first names and the “wish list” of a local family. The donors purchase gifts
for the family and deliver them to TIC offices, where they are then distributed to the families. This is the most rewarding
way to support a family in need of a “hand-up” at the holidays.
Gift Certificates/Cash Donations: Some donors prefer to purchase gift certificates to help a individual or family meet a
special need, or make a cash donation to The Center, who in turn, purchases gift certificates or gifts for individuals and families. The Center’s trained staff thoroughly interviews each client to verify their need for help before distributing any
form of assistance. We also meet regularly with other agencies to assure that there is no duplication of services. If you
are interested in helping a local resident OR need assistance, please contact our office for more information.
Assistance is limited, so please contact us early if you require assistance for your family.
