Community Action Stepping Up to Help Provide Holiday Gifts for Kids in Need

As the need for assistance grows in rural America in wake of the COVID pandemic, a central Illinois group is stepping into the ring to provide the opportunity for holiday gifts for kids.


Alison Rumler-Gomez is the Executive Director for Community Action and indicates their program for this year titled 'Holiday Hearts for Kids' is providing a shopping experience for low-income households to be able to provide Christmas gifts for their little ones. She emphasizes they wanted to make sure this program would not intruding on other programs in their service areas.



According to Rumler-Gomez, like many other agencies that offer assistance to their community, they are seeing individuals and families seeking help that normally would not. Because of that their program is not requiring proof of income or anything they normally might.



Community Action is asking their communities to help provide this opportunity for those in need this holiday season. To donate, visit capcil.info/holidayheartsforkids.
