Don't miss Wednesday's Bobcast

Martha Vandervoort of Interfaith Ministries discusses how to help with Christmas Clearinghouse. The deadline to assist needy families this holiday season is Friday.
In case you missed it, Features editor Laura Tutor wrote on the effort in her Sunday column.
In the column, she wrote:
The Clearing House is a work of art, really. People’s lives, wants and wishes are pored over, filed and matched with big-hearted folks who agree to step up. They accept the challenge and privilege put before a community to provide for all.
The stories come through the Clearing House each year. The families’ names are different — most have never asked for help before — but their circumstances are familiar to those among the “haves” who’ve cared to notice the "have nots."
