If you need somewhere to go on Christmas afternoon, come.”She says there has been a great deal of help from local businesses and from Cache Community Connections. von Niederhausern and Whitney have applied to be an official non-profit organization going by the name “Global Neighbor” to help people not only locally but on a global basis.
