Info Sheet for Florence County Charitable Organization Referrals

This time of year, our church gets several requests a week for assistance with electric bills, food, christmas gifts, and even transportation for folks who've been released from the jail down the road. When we can't help someone directly, it's good to have a quick reference to help put them in touch with those who can. We also support some of these ministries financially and materially. Here's our list for 2009. I keep one by the phone and one in may car, too.
