Although many tangible items often are furnished and will be delivered to others during the holiday, ongoing needs still exist. Dollars to assist families in need or in a crisis situation are needed. Often situations arise that cannot be met with program dollars due to eligibility guidelines and regulations and these are the individuals who fall between the cracks.

Recently a gentleman came to our agency with a check given in memory of a loved one and stated that he wanted the money used in whatever way was necessary to help someone in need. Gifts of stocks have been donated to Western Community Action, Inc. The stocks were sold and the dollars were used to provide support for families. Donating stocks was a better tax deduction than selling the stocks and the individual donating money. This generosity is greatly appreciated and will definitely make someone else's life better. Throughout the year needs are there that no specific program dollars can meet. Individual's needs vary greatly and in no way can their needs be planned or anticipated. Donations from the community members can meet those needs.
