Several small farms are providing fresh produce and meats for Christmas Baskets that will be delivered to dozens of local families in Clinton and Essex Counties struggling to make ends meet.
It’s part of Project We Care through Champlain National Bank.
Many families may not have much under their Christmas tree this year. A study by the United Way finds that nearly half of the families living in the North Country are having a tough time making ends meet which can mean they have little to spend on Christmas. You can watch our Community Forum with our United Way partners who are trying to help these families struggling to get by and living paycheck-to-paycheck. You can also learn about new programs in the community that aim to help, and what you can do to help these families not only during the holidays, but year-round.
