Throughout the holiday season, Times Record News will be sharing stories of how Times Charities has aided our partner nonprofit organizations in helping individuals throughout the past year.
Earlier this year, a man called Interfaith Outreach Services for help with a sky-high electric bill.
He explained that he was married and he and his wife both worked full time. However, during the summer months, their electric bill tripled in one month. It was impossible for the couple to make the payment in full. They were able to make a smaller payment on the total but needed assistance to pay the electric bill in full.
Thanks to Times Charities, Interfaith was able to help this couple.
Times Charities, a nonprofit created by the Times Record News more than 20 years ago, raises money during the holiday season to address financial woes throughout the calendar year. Times Charities also helps area veterans get back on their feet.
Donations to Times Charities go to the four partners: Faith Mission, Interfaith Outreach Services, The Salvation Army and Grace Ministries in Burkburnett.
Overhead expenses are not paid from donations.
No money is spent from the Times Charities account until the situations of those seeking help are verified by our partners.
Donations can be made in the form of cash, checks and debit or credit cards. Online donations are also welcome through https://wichitacf.fcsuite.com/erp/donate
Make checks payable to Times Charities/WFACF, and mail them to 2405 Kell #100, Wichita Falls, TX 76308.
