Christmas time is here, and everyone is wondering what they will get for Christmas. But have you ever thought about the people wondering how they will make it through Christmas? If so, you may be wondering how you can help. Thankfully, there are multiple organizations that take donations for people in need.
The Salvation Army is one of the more popular organizations. They sit outside our local grocery stores ringing bells and collecting donations in a bucket. They always have signs and red buckets. You can’t miss them! You can also go to their headquarters at 205 S 1st St Nicholasville; there, you can pick out a child and receive a list of items they want as Christmas gifts. Another opportunity to give back to the community is to donate to our local fire department’s toy drive. Starting this Wednesday, give toys to the fire department at East and West Jessamine Middle Schools from 1 a.m. to 9 p.m., or research other ways to help in your community today!
