Neighbors helping neighbors

ASHEBORO — The purpose of the Neighbors Help-ing Neighbors have a “Brighter Christmas” is to make the community aware of special needs that are usually not addressed by existing service agencies. 


Here are the first cases approved for help this holiday season:


446 — An Asheboro man needs an electric lift chair. 

443 — An Asheboro woman needs car repair —a catalytic converter and a radiator. 

441 — A Franklinville woman needs repairs for weak floor boards and some rotten boards on the deck and stairs on a mobile home.

404 — A Climax woman needs to her deck.

445 — An Asheboro woman needs a handicap ramp.


NHN is directed by a committee of service profession-als. These volunteers represent many organizations, including Randolph Hub, Randolph County Senior Adults Association, Randolph County Habitat for Humanity, Randolph County Veterans Council, Christians United Outreach Center and community members.
