Thanks to the community for support this holiday season

Agassiz-Harrison Community Services (AHCS) wants to recognize and thank all those who helped make this holiday season a roaring success!

Whew!!! Now that the dust has settled and we can breathe, Agassiz-Harrison Community Services (AHCS) wants to recognize and thank all those who helped make this holiday season a roaring success!

It all started with the multitude of donors, individuals, businesses and organizations that had food and/or toy drives, collected blankets, coats, cash donations, sponsored a Christmas Hamper or organized fundraisers to support our Christmas activities.

Your generous contributions helped to fill needs at a time of year that can be very difficult. We anticipate this need to grow as more individuals are finding themselves in situations where they require additional support for their families.

We are very grateful and appreciative for individuals, organizations and businesses that continually support AHCS, allowing us to provide services for families and individuals who find themselves in a time of hardship.

As Helen Keller said, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” This holiday season, as a community we helped many individuals and families. Agassiz-Harrison Community Services appreciates the community’s support…. we send a heartfelt THANK YOU!!
