"Christmas time can be a particularly stressful time for struggling families, especially those with young children, when spending money is not an option. With the generous help of our community, needy families can receive gifts for their children and nutritious foods. You can give joy to people who might have otherwise had a very bleak holiday season," says Patti Regan, Care and Share Chairperson.
Care and Share also has programs that provide food for school-age children and they supplement programs that provide assistance with past-due rents and utilities to families in Mandan and Morton County.
