2-1-1 HELPLINE Hosts Holiday Caring Program to Provide Community
Information and Connect Those in Need

The holiday season is upon us and many nonprofit organizations are providing holiday assistance for those in need. 2-1-1 HELPLINE, an initiative of the Institute for Human Services, Inc., hosts a database of holiday assistance programs and information and connects those in need with available services.  

“This is a great opportunity for the community to utilize 2-1-1 HELPLINE during the holiday season and allows our partners to collaborate to make a significant impact on the community,” noted Belinda Hoad, Director of 2-1-1 HELPLINE and Mobility Management. “2-1-1 HELPLINE’s Holiday Caring Program offers one central information resource, helping the community best support those in need this holiday season.” 

Organizations providing holiday assistance are encouraged to call 2-1-1 HELPLINE to provide any available details. Organizations already participating include Addison Area Christmas Food Baskets; Canaseraga Spirit of Christmas; Catholic Charities of Allegany and Cattaraugus, Schuyler, and Steuben Counties; Christ Episcopal Church; Elmira Free Community Kitchen and many others. 

2-1-1 HELPLINE’s free, confidential, and anonymous services are available by phone, text, chat, or on the web. Please visit 211helpline.org, dial 2-1-1 (1-800-346-2211), or text your zip code to 898211 to get connected.
