KERMIT - The non-profit charitable organization that has provided assistance for area residents for many years are currently in the process of accepting applications for their Christmas project that supplies food, toys and clothing to those in need.
This year, the organization will be out in the community taking these applications for those who are unable to make the journey to their Kermit facility.
For your convenience, staff members with Christian Help will be set up at the following locations to better accommodate those who are requesting their help. If you have already signed up through an area church or agency, you need not apply again.
On Wednesday, Nov. 7, Christian Help representatives will be at Jamie’s Restaurant in Dingess and the Delbarton Housing Authority office between the hours of 10 a.m. and noon. Later that day, they will be at the Jacob’s Well Mission, located on Third Avenue in Williamson in the former Cantees Department store location and the Magnolia Gardens Conference Room, from 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.
Each Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, you may apply for this assistance at the Christian Help Office in Kermit, between the hours of 10 a.m. and noon, and also from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. You must provide your current proof of residence, income and the number of children in the home.
The items are scheduled to be distributed on Saturday, Nov. 22, at the Kermit Gym. The center is still collecting donations of new or gently used items for this project.
For more information regarding this or other projects and services provided by Christian Help, you may call 304-393-4251. If no one answers, you are asked to please leave a message.
