HOW IT WORKS

Newspaper with a Heart gives direct assistance to dozens of individuals and families who reside in Polk County and are in need.

No money goes directly to the people helped, but rather to landlords, mortgage holders, utilities and other creditors.

Many recipients have nowhere else to turn in a county where the social service network is often overwhelmed by need.

All decisions for assistance are made by the Newspaper with a Heart committee.

The committee includes representatives of The Ledger, United Way of Central Florida, Catholic Charities, Center for Independent Living, Hampton Disability Specialists, Lake Wales Care Center, Polk County Social Services and Salvation Army.

Applicants need to have available such personal information as Social Security numbers, salary pay stubs and other documentation supporting needs.
