Neighbors Helping Neighbors have a Brighter Christmas
Seeking Donors and Requests
The purpose of the Neighbors Helping Neighbors have a “Brighter Christmas” is to make the community
aware of special needs that are usually not addressed by existing service agencies. Thanks to the
generosity and kindness of Randolph County citizens, many people have received assistance over the years
through this program. During this holiday season we are looking to serve folks of our community just as
Brighter Christmas Fund has for many years. We are now taking applications for this year’s Neighbors
Helping Neighbors season!
Neighbors Helping Neighbors have a “Brighter Christmas” is directed by a committee of service
professionals. These volunteers represent many organizations including, The Randolph HUB, Randolph
County Senior Adults Association, Randolph County Habitat for Humanity, Randolph County Veterans
Council, Christians United Outreach Center and At-Large Community Members.
Donors - You can meet these needs by donating:
1) By credit card, call or come to CUOC OR use the website www.mycuoc.org click on “give back”,

provide assistance for.

To apply: The average NHN request is $250 - $500. Please do not submit NHN requests for rent, utilities,
Christmas gifts, or things where programs are already in place to meet those needs.

When a letter is received, the committee will review each request and determine which member is most
appropriate to be assigned as the lead person. The committee will meet each week to review the progress of
each request and its findings. The identity of the applicants, unless consent is given, will remain confidential.
The Randolph HUB will publish stories based on applicant letters to show potential donors what special
needs exist in the community and how the needs should best be met. Applicants will be informed in writing of
the committee’s recommendations as soon as possible. If requests are found to be unsuitable, efforts will be
made to refer the information to the appropriate human services agency.
