Not everyone looks forward to this time of year.
This year, more than ever, many families in our community can’t afford food or gifts this holiday season. Many are still working to recover from the devastating floods that took everything from them.
Your gift to NAM will make a huge difference for neighbors in need; you can mail a check, or make your gift right here online.
We have seen an unimaginable increase in families seeking assistance this holiday season; we ask that you give generously. Your gift will have an immediate impact for families in need.
Because of your generosity in 2016…
2,096 Children received toys during the holiday season
31,304 People were helped by NAM’s Assistance Department
