WRAL Holiday Giving Database is now up and running!

Posted November 18, 2013

Lowes Foods Food Drive 2011


The WRAL Holiday Giving Database is now available for you to search for donation events, charitable organizations (like food banks) and ways to share your time, talent and treasure this holiday season. Please add any other events or organizations that are accepting and offering help this holiday and throughout the year.

The link to the database can be found in the box above.

This is a great resource if you want to donate or are in need of assistance. You can search by city or county and then you will see the available options including address, phone, etc.

If your favorite place to donate to is not listed, please fill out the form located on the database and your submission will be added to the list, once it is approved.

Thanks to everyone who posted donation locations on the post I made a couple weeks ago.  Hopefully all of them were verified and included on the list and will help lots of people.

    Got it. Thanks! I'll make the request. I think it is also going to be on the front page of wral with the other holiday resources. Thanks for the additional info!

    Down near the links for the price book, coupons, etc. on the main page of the blog

    I'm not sure what you mean by adding a link near other resources. What other resources? I am clearly not comprehending fully tonight. :-)

    This is wonderful. Do you think we can add a link near the other resources? So many organizations are in need of help all year round. It would serve as a great reminder to many of us too.
