Area nonprofits share Christmas lists
News from Jacksonville Daily News:

Jacksonville area giving may be at its peak, but it hasn’t been able to fill every need in the area this holiday season just yet.

While various programs work to ensure no child will go without a gift, local nonprofits still need help preparing for sudden financial needs that people in the community may face this time of year.

“We’re still in need of toys and clothing donations, as well as monetary funds for last-minute requests that come into our office,” said Captain Tavia Williams, corps officer with the Salvation Army.

The toys would go to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, where trees around town are decorated with numbered paper angel tags with information about a child. Jones County children are in particular need of gift donations, in part because they cannot receive toys through Onslow County programs like Christmas Cheer, Williams said.

The Salvation Army could use donations to their food pantry, which can help sustain the program after seasonal giving dies down, and as the temperatures continue to drop, the need for coats, blankets and hats for the homeless in the community increases. Donations of any kind can be dropped off at any of the Salvation Army stores in the area, where they will be sent back to the administrative office at 535 Bell Fork Road in Jacksonville.
