In addition to food banks and hot meals, Logan County has many other agencies that offer help and could use some help themselves. This is a list of just a handful of the local resources that I have come accross and feel are worth passing on. These are great places to find help, volunteer your time, or donate your extras to. Please let me know if I did not list your favorite place to donate or receive aid or if any of the information is out of date. For a more complete list of all agencies in Logan County, visit C.O.L.A.S.
