Family Promise of Hall County, an organization that helps homeless families, has found another way to help those in need. Instead of simply offering aid free of charge, it’s giving families that are part of its program, and those referred by other agencies, the chance to purchase gifts at a reduced price this Christmas season. It’s a way to help provide materially while also providing emotionally.
