For too many in our community, Christmas in 2009 is just another day to worry about bills past due, food for the family, joblessness, and healthcare that is needed but not affordable. The recession and the recent floods have driven thousands of people to MUST Ministries. The parent who lost a job came for education and training, resume help and career counseling. The family washed out of their home came for new socks and underwear, food and clothing. The grandmother with diabetes came for treatment and patient education. There was no place to turn… until they came to MUST.

During this Christmas season, you can dramatically help change the lives of those around you who are struggling. Give generously today and make this Christmas a time to remember.
