Save Money in this Sunday's paper
Do you have what charities need?
UPDATED 11/23/14 For 29 years, The Charlotte Observer has worked with charities in our region to determine their needs and then published those for our readers during the holiday season. This year's annual Giving Guide includes the needs of more than 200 organizations from 10 counties.

The database allows you to search for agencies by zip code, county, category or by items an agency is seeking. For example, if you have a TV to donate, you can find out which agencies near you might want it.
