Celebrating 10 Years – 2016 Holiday Giving Guide

With our 2016 Holiday Giving Guide we celebrate ten years of our donors and volunteers sharing their talents and resources with local non-profit agencies. We invite you to join us in celebrating these past 10 years of the Holiday Giving Guide. Celebrate with us by starting a new tradition of sharing your resources, talents and by inspiring our children and grandchildren to give to those in need during the holiday season.   When shopping for Christmas gifts this season, please keep the United Way Holiday Giving Guide in mind. This guide has the wish lists for several local non-profit agencies. There may be people on your list who might truly appreciate having a donation or a gift to a local non-profit agency made in their name, rather than receiving a tangible gift. A $25 donation to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, through the United Way of Fort Smith Area, will provide books to a local child for a year.   This is a perfect option for people who “have everything” or whose lives have been impacted in some way by one of these agencies or programs. There are also agencies that are in need of volunteers. The holidays are the perfect time for us to take a little time and share our talents with these agencies. Whether it be visiting with the elderly in nursing homes, helping to deliver food to the elderly or organizing a food or toy drive. We know your time is valuable and we so appreciate it when you share it with our community.
