Holiday Help: Orange County

Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving! Sorry the Holiday Help posts took a brief hiatus; I had a family emergency just before the holiday and didn’t get to all of my posts.

As the holidays approach, the Doing Good blog is sharing ways to help others during the season. Today’s opportunity is from the Orange County Department of Social Services.

There, social workers are seeing more new families coming for help. They are hoping to help hundreds of Orange County children this Christmas. To help, sponsor a family. Sponsors can choose how they want to help: getting gifts for children, putting together a food basket or shopping for the parents, too.  Call Donna Waugh Robinson at 540/672-5550.
