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.
