Promote good works

With Halloween out of the way after tonight, the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are up next on the calendar.

And with those holidays comes an increase in charitable giving for those in need.

Whether it’s the Harvest for the Hungry giveaway to help families have a proper Thanksgiving dinner, the two-day Christmas food distribution at the Chesapeake Community Center by the CMO, the Angel Tree at Symmes Valley High School to purchase gifts for children or the Ironton Elks’ annual Christmas party for DD students at Rock Hill, there is an abundance of good will and good deeds this time of year.

And, many times, there are events and charitable drives that escape our and the general public’s notice until after the fact.

Which is why, this year, we would like to keep a running list of campaigns, efforts and events to encourage participation and donation.

If you or any organization you know has a charitable project going during the holidays, we would like to hear about it and help promote it.

Please send a description of the project to with the subject header “Holiday charities,” or call 740-532-1441 Ext. 214.
