Community Involvement

Is part of your American Dream to be able to help persons less fortunate than yourself? We know that our President's, Congress Person's, State Legislator's, and county agencie's funds are stretched thin. They, however, are working on the long range solutions to individual's problems of unemployment, inadequate housing, lonliness, and hunger.

It is importent for individual citizens to step up to the responsibility to help solve some of the immediate and local area's needs wherever thay can. These individual acts support the very foundation of the Democratic Party. Look at the header of this page to remind yourself for what we stand. Can you help in this time of need?

Here is a list of both donation and time involvement needs within our county.
