What's Up Community web sites enable people within a community to help and inform each other about up coming events. You can also post items you don't need anymore that may help someone or items you may need.
We started this when we learned of a senior in a community who's house was destroyed by fire. The went to a local community outlet to see if they could get some help to provide them some furniture to replace what was lost in the fire. Being a senior citizen they had limited funds to live off and could not afford to purchase items. The local community outlet said that they only sell items and will not donate items to people within the community.
The funds raised by this outlet were used for projects in other areas and countries. We felt this was wrong since they received their items for free why can't they help people within their own community in a time of need?
