This week, Syma Chowdhry looks at more organizations helping those less fortunate this holiday season and finds out how you can help, too. 

Syma’s guests include Angela Aufdemberge of Vista Maria, an organization that provides recovery services for victimized and neglected children.  They have a Holiday Wish list they need help filling.

Major Mark Anderson of The Salvation Army stops by to talk about the annual Red Kettle campaign, how the money raised helps those in need, and how you can join in as a bellringer.

William Jones, Jr. of Focus: HOPE explains the tremendous need of local seniors and the Focus: HOPE food program that will provide meals for over 30,000 seniors this holiday season.

Finally, Allison Koenigbauer of the American Red Cross explains their Holiday Gift Giving catalog which allows you to purchase a symbolic gift by donating money toward a much-needed item or service.

Then Community Correspondent Rosalie Kakos presents a request from the men of Mariner’s Inn who are gathering holiday items for their Adopt-a-Family program.
