WIS Perspective: An editorial on Families Helping Families

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - This year, WIS and the Palmetto Project celebrate our 20th anniversary partnering for Families Helping Families.

Each year the project identifies needy families throughout the Midlands who might otherwise not have a very merry Christmas. These families are then adopted by folks just like you who experience the real gift of giving by providing gifts for each member of that adopted family which are distributed just in time for Christmas.

Last year, Families Helping Families met the needs of over 1600 families, and this year our goal is 1800 families. We are already well on our way to meeting that goal, but there is still time for you to help.

Call one of our  Families Helping Families volunteers at 758-1020 or adopt a family online to give a gift you will always cherish.

Thank you for helping WIS and the Palmetto Project help a local family enjoy a more memorable holiday season this year.
