Ways to Give | Ways to Help

The holiday season is one of giving, and while many of us enjoy both the giving and the receiving of gifts, many in our community are less fortunate. To that end, we have compiled a “Giving List” of organizations that accept donations year-long, not just during the holidays. Volunteer opportunities may also be available at these organizations.

Thank you for giving!
