Local Charities to Donate to Before End of 2011

Please add your suggestions to the list.

It's not just a time to help those in need. It's also the last week to make charitable contributions that can be deducted on this year's taxes. So here are some great local charities and organizations that deserve a check. 

Have any other suggestions of local places to donate to before the end of the year? Please add them in the comment section to share with other Avon Patch readers.

I you have an adult bicycle that you would like to donate to Simsbury Free Bike, call 860 658-1110 and leave a message for Larry Linonis. You can email me also at linonisl@aol.com. A receipt will be mailed to you for tax purposes so be sure to include your address. Bikes should be in good mechanical condition. If the tires are soft or flat due to lack of use, that is acceptable. Best regards, Larry Linonis Director. SFB
