Families who need a helping hand this holiday season have until Nov. 14 to sign up at their school’s family resource center.

Parents or guardians should contact the school where their child or children attend to register and receive participation information.

The deadline has passed to sign up at Crittenden-Mount Zion Elementary, but names are still being taken at Dry Ridge, Sherman, Mason-Corinth, Grant County Middle and Grant County High School.

Students in the Williamstown school district should contact the family resource center at 824-4421 for deadline and sign up information.

“Families need to know they’ll be served through one community agency,” said Nancy Powell, director of the Sherman Elementary FRC.

Powell said the family resource centers are working together to keep a database of those who have requested help, which will eliminate the duplication of services.

Families with no children in school should contact Helping Hands at 823-1303 or the Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission Grant County Center at 824-4768.

Helping Hands will be assisting families with infants or toddlers but will refer families with school-aged children to the family resource center where their child attends school.

The CAC will be collecting names until Dec. 1 and will be able to assist 20 families with food only.
