Help needed to make holidays happy

November 9, 2004

Albany- It takes a lot of people and a lot of work to ensure that South Georgia families have what they need during the holidays.

The United Way Help Line connects needy families with resources to help them during the holidays. But this year, the Help Line doesn't have resources to refer them to. Usually churches and organizations have already called to say if they're donating food or toys, but few have called this year.

"It's very sad to think that there's going to be a child out there for Christmas who's not possibly going to get anything under the Christmas tree, but that's a reality," said Kim Davis with the United Way.

The United Way also needs organizations that can help with Thanksgiving.

Organizations interested in helping can call the United Way at 888-6126.
