Thanks to for letting me know about this incredible group! They help people who fall through the cracks—like us. Many of us. Those who have too much income for most public assistance programs, but who occasionally get hit with bills that could cause a cascade failure in our lives. An unexpected vehicle repair, medical bill, broken glasses, etc. For instance, they paid for the burial of a stillborn baby for one family.
The number of people they can help each month depends entirely on the donations they’ve received. ALL of their records are open. You can see their financial ledgers right there on their website, with requests and donations. They don’t give the names of the people who have requested help, of course—they only identify them by location.
They need cash donations, of course—and stocks! But they also need volunteers, both for the group itself and others. They seek people who are willing to help folks in their local areas with whatever skills they have. I promise, your skills ARE needed by someone.
You can also help them by iGive. They accept donations of CDs, DVDs and video games that they then sell on eBay, too., or starting your online shopping at
