As we greet the beginning of fall, and say farewell to summer we are also reminded of the upcoming holidays (even though the Florida heat has not received the memo). We all know that between the festivities, family, and work that the holidays will be here before we know it.
If you would like to learn more about holiday assistance resources in Marion it is as easy as 1-2-3, or excuse me, as easy as 2-1-1 is more like it!
2-1-1 has updated information on the social service agencies offering holiday assistance with:
Thanksgiving and Christmas Day meals (prepared and enjoyed on-site); Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets (to be prepared at home); and holiday gifts and toys (for children and/or disabled/older adults).
Or, if you are wanting to share the holiday spirit through volunteering, donating, or fundraising please contact 2-1-1 for information on local Marion County agencies.
2-1-1 is available 24/7 via phone (dial 2-1-1), text (zip code to 898-211), and live chat.
