28 Sep Chatham Connecting
Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons in Chatham County and a good time to think about your neighbors who need help in every season. Chatham Connecting, chathamconnecting.org, lists over 100 non-profits and government agencies serving the county and supporting those in the community who struggle to put food on the table, educate their children, and care for the aged. The list of organizations and their needs is diverse, and the ways you can help include volunteering, donating goods, or financial support. For example, CORA and Chatham County Schools seek to feed all students this school year. This effort needs volunteers, and you can register your interest at www.corafoodpantry.org. Donations are needed by educational non-profits such as Chatham Literacy, Communities in Schools, and The Learning Trail. The Chatham County Council on Aging seeks activity books such as large-print crossword puzzles and other supplies for seniors sheltering in place. The Chatham Historical Association, chathamhistory.org, seeks volunteers to prepare historical documents and pictures for digitalization in the state archives. Work on this program can be done with masks and social distancing. Check our website for information about the non-profit of your choice to learn more. We connect those who need help with those who can help.
