By volunteering you can help low-income seniors safely remain in their homes
and function properly for the owner while improving the community as a whole.
In a perfect world, there is no poverty. In a perfect world, all low-income and handicapped seniors are cared for by their families. The harsh reality is that over 20% of elderly Americans are shelter-poor. This means these seniors can not afford basic necessities, let alone maintenance, after paying for housing costs.
Through Tri-County CIA, you can become part of the solution. This is an opportunity for you to make a difference in your own community.
Christmas In Action is a nation wide, non-profit organization dedicated to providing FREE HOME REPAIRS for qualified low-income and/or handicapped senior homeowners.
Volunteers provide home repairs to make our seniors’ homes safe and functional for the owner while improving the community as a whole.
Tri-County CIA is a locally based affiliate, supported by our municipalities, businesses, churches, schools and civic groups.
We host several fundraisers and accept monetary donations year-round. 100% of our funds raised stay local and are used to make workday a reality to our senior homeowners.
Please attend our fundraisers when you can.
If your company, civic group, or church would
like us to present our mission please contact
CIA and one of our board members would be happy to do so.
CIA WORK DAY:
Every year, the CIA Worday is the last Saturday
in April. Our volunteers, armed with determination and materials, unite in compassion and companionship to work towards completion of repairs for our seniors. This effort is akin to
a traditional barn raising in a “Neighbor-Helping-Neighbor” result.
If you would like to help CIA, you may do so as an individual volunteer, as
a member of a group, as a sponsoring business or through contributions
of money or materials. Whatever gift you give you will be part of the solution.
Christmas In Action is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization Serving the Tri-County area.
