If so, please join the Christmas Clearinghouse to reach more people in need! As co-administrator of the CSRA Christmas Clearinghouse, United Way collaborates with over 40 local non-profits, churches, schools, government entities and civic groups to provide holiday assistance. The clearinghouse reduces duplication and increases the resources available to serve individuals and families that are in the greatest need in our community. The project includes coordinating efforts to reach eight outlying counties. Last year, over 16,000 individuals in the CSRA received assistance through Clearinghouse partners! Through the creation of a web-based, user friendly system, participating organizations can quickly determine if the families they want to assist are already being helped elsewhere. All information is kept confidential and organizations are able to assist more families each year through their free participation in this program. Contact Brooke Steele for more information and to get your organization involved: 706-724-5544, ext. 8933 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
