It sounds worth checking out. I know, too, that many churches and neighborhood organizations have specific needs they are trying to fill.

Or maybe someone who is in need could go there as well. Thanks for the information.

This year I really had the urge to reach out and help other people who are struggling. I didn't want to donate to a large organization, or just buy a present for an anonymous person from a gift tree. I wanted to really connect with a person or a family. So I found the website: www.SantasWishList.org. I would definitely recommend checking it out. There are people there posting who have Christmas and non-Christmas needs. There is a huge range of family sizes and needs, so no matter how much or how little you have to give, I'm sure you'll be able to find a good match. I am struggling myself, but I know that I have enough to help at least one person. I found a grandmother/granddaughter on there asking for help. The granddaughter is 15 and all she was asking for was an electric blanket and a lava lamp. It broke my heart. I am so happy to have found them, and to be able to help them.

Anyway, I don't want to push this idea on anyone. I just wanted to pass along the info in case anyone else is in the position to help, but doesn't really know where to look.

**ETA: Great point from the below poster. Yes, if you are in need, you can also post there!
