There are many communities in Appalachia that can benefit from a helping hand.  If you’re looking for a way to help, below you’ll find 5 easy suggestions that can make a huge impact.

1. Volunteer Your Time

There are many organizations in Appalachia that are in need of volunteers.  You can make a huge impact from swinging a hammer to answering a phone.  Most nonprofits are in need of help in some form or fashion and any effort helps out the families and communities of Appalachia.  If you’re interested in volunteering within the Fahe Network, please contact Jackie Weiss for the organizations closest to you.

2. Donate to Local Clothing Drives and Food Banks

Many families in Appalachia live below the normal income levels.  By giving extra clothes and food, you are helping these families to put their income towards their utility bills, rent, and medical bills.

3. Join Our Online Awareness Campaign

We have an Instagram campaign known as Uncensored Appalachia that focuses on the condition of the housing stock in the area.  You can help raise awareness among people outside of the region by joining in.

4. Donate to Local Housing Organizations

If you don’t have the time to volunteer, donations can go a long way in the right hands.  Fahe has over 30 years of experience applying donations and investments to where they can do the most good in Appalachia.  Follow these links to learn more about Donating and Investing.

5. Tell Your Friends about Fahe

Fahe does a lot of good and we can do a lot more if people know about us.  Please tell your friends and coworkers that you know about a nonprofit that does community building for Appalachia.  Tell them there is an organization that has a mortgage-lending branch that helps low-income families obtain a low-interest home loan.  Tell them that they have a chance to change the landscape of Appalachia.

Take An Action

However you choose to do it, thank you for taking action and helping Appalachia.  Feel free to tell us what you do for your fellow man on Facebook and Twitter.
