Charlie’s Challenge 2022

Raffle Items for the 2022 Drawings

A Generous CommunityThank you for 2021

As we enter the late fall season we again begin to plan for helping our neighbors with their heating and emergency needs this winter.  It is also a time to reflect on what was accomplished last winter season and to thank our community for their donations to Charlie’s Challenge.  The gifts of this community during the pandemic were more generous than ever before and we are so grateful for them.  Because of all of the people who contributed we were able to help many families with heating, electric needs, emergency funds and blankets.  Thank you Jackson County!!!

Charlie’s Challange January, 2022

You Are Invited to Participate

Dear Friends,

Charlie’s Challenge will again be an on-line fundraiser this year because of the continuation of the pandemic. We will  miss seeing you all in person for our usual fun evening but we think it is safer not to be in a large gathering.  You all provided amazing support for last year’s on-line event and we are grateful.  Because of your generosity we were able to help 140 different families in our county last year.  Your gifts were unmatched by any past year’s giving.

Thank You!!!

We welcome you to view the Jackson Neighbors In Need web page, jacksonneighborsinneed.org.  Harrah’s Cherokee Casino and Resort is once again our main sponsor and is offering a Yeti Cooler and insulated drink cups as a raffle item.  Pictured on our web page are additional wonderful raffle itemsoffered by our great group of community business supporters.  For every fifty dollar donation your name will be entered for the drawing. If you donate $200, you will have four tickets in your name.
