The River Center Christmas Angels program was established to help families through providing a couple of gifts for children at the holidays. We have two focus areas – first to get as many of our identified families hooked into existing programs in our region and second to help supply gifts for those who are not covered by the existing Christmas programs this year. I maintain a list of regional contacts and programs so that during October I can refer as many people as possible.
November is National Family Caregivers Month, and this year’s theme is #CaregiversConnect. According to the Caregiver Action Network, “When caregivers connect — whether it’s for support, to get information, or just to talk to someone who understands what you’re going through — it can help you feel less isolated.”
