The Family Access Network  (FAN) receives a $7000 grant from U.S. Bancorp. FAN spokesperson Cynthia Jurgensen says it being Thanksgiving week, the timing couldn't be better: "We can get that family or their child what they need the most right now. So Thanksgiving week is just really busy trying to make sure people have food on the table, holidays coming up; making sure there's toys at Christmas in this pretty challenging economy that we still live in." Jurgensen says fan served almost 7900 students and their families last year and the need increases with every month. She adds that they are appreciative of the big companies grants and donations they also rely on individuals in the community to help them. And right now they have a huge need for coats and warm winter clothing. If you can help, contact the Family Access Network. We have a link on the links page at KBND.com.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
