Just three days left for Holiday Help program

December 18, 2013 

You have only three days left to pick a Holiday Help letter and bring Christmas to somebody in need.

The Ledger-Enquirer lobby will be open today and Monday from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., and Tuesday, which is Christmas Eve, from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.

We have plenty of letters remaining, and most of the requests are simple: clothing and maybe a small toy for the children of a family.

To see the letters and pick some

one to help, stop by our building at 17 W. 12th St.

If you have an abundance, we hope you'll consider helping.

When you find a person or family you'd like to help, we do recommend calling them first to learn more about their situation and determine whether they're a good match for the help you'd like to give. The Ledger-Enquirer does not screen letters, nor can we guarantee their truthfulness.

If you want to send us a Holiday Help letter, you'd better hurry. You could mail it to us -- at Holiday Help, P.O. Box 711, Columbus, GA 31902-0711 -- but we'd recommend dropping it off in the Ledger-Enquirer lobby.

Be sure to describe what you need, and to include your name, phone number and address so donors can contact you.

Happy Holidays!
