Christmas Help- The Cochran Firm Disability Lawyers Provides Christmas Help Advice
(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 26, 2013 ) Dothan, AL The effects of the recent recession are still being felt by families across the nation. Christmas remains bleak for many people who are trying to determine how to purchase gifts for their children or find a good meal to enjoy. Fortunately, there are many organizations that step up to fill the gap and help make the holiday season a happier time. However, despite numerous donations, it is recommended that requests for toys and gifts be made sooner rather than later.
One of the most famous is the Marines Toys for Tots Charity. A needy person can contact them by going to their website, http://www.toysfortots.org then clicking the link Request a Toy located in the top menu bar. On the next page, the person should select the state and area needed to be directed to the closest Toys for Tots centers website. The smaller websites vary in the manner of requesting toys, but in general, locating another link to request a toy will lead one to the area coordinators contact information or a form to complete.
Another organization known for helping thousands of people during the holidays is the Salvation Army. Using donations provided by generous people dropping money into the red kettles outside of stores, depending on location, the Salvation Army provides meals, gifts, clothing and food baskets for those in need. The best way for a family to be put on the list for donations is for them to contact their nearest Salvation Army office. The locations can be found by going to the Corps website, http://www.salvationarmyusa.org, and entering a zip code into the box located at the top right side of the homepage. A list of the nearest community centers will be shown along with a phone number for the needy person to call.
The United Way provides millions of dollars to communities through numerous programs throughout the year. However, they still make special efforts throughout the holidays to help using the Angel Tree program where people can contribute money or specific items for the needy. In many communities the United Way provides meals along with gifts. The United Way typically requires proof of residence, people in the household and income prior to providing assistance, but then can also be tapped for additional help such as paying utility bills if needed. To get on the donations list, a person needs to contact their local United Way office by calling 211 or visiting UWs website at http://www.unitedway.org and entering their zip code in the box located at the upper right of the screen.
Additional local assistance can be found throughout cities all across the nation through churches and other private organizations. Often local media and news outlets will have information on these groups.
By spending a few minutes contacting various groups and organizations now, everyone should be able to make sure that their family receives some Christmas cheer this December.
