Herald Mail 2017 Holiday Nonprofit Wish List

Holiday Nonprofit Wish List offers the community a chance at gift giving

 (Hagerstown) Article 

Every year around this time, we publish the Holiday Nonprofit Wish List.

We reached out to the community and asked nonprofits what they need to help do their jobs every day. We asked that the only thing they couldn’t request is money. We wanted tangible items that would immediately help them with what they did for those in the community.

So they have done their part.

Now, our dear readers, it is your part.

Look through this list and find an organization that speaks to your heart — and give. Or find several organizations and give one or two items. Because giving to these organizations will, in turn, helps your community.

When you give, please let the nonprofits know you saw it here. And nonprofits, to help us continue this wish, we need to know if you’re getting items from this list. We’ll catch up with them after the first of the year and see if and how many wishes were granted.

So give away and happy holidays!
