Christmas Assistance


The Christmas Hamper and Toy Program offers a gift of food (gift cards for Presidents Choice) for people in need at Christmas. The Gift Card allows individuals and families the choice of what foods they would like for their Christmas Dinner. They also receive the choice of a Ham or Turkey.

Individuals with children will receive a large toy, stocking stuffers and knitted items. Children who are 10 and up receive a $20.00 Gift Card to Wal-mart. Registration is held in November and part of December. Gift Cards, produce and toys are distributed a week before Christmas.
