Christmas For the Children is the
County-wide Christmas and Screening center so names
names aren't duplicated over and over. Christmas for
the Children, Patsy Hurd, begins taking country-wide
applications beginning in October. Patsy also takes
names from other organizations that help children at
Christmas, thereby, creating a master list of names.
Some Churches, clubs, and businesses ask for names off
our lists to provide Christmas for needy children.
Some groups allow us to have parties in their
facilities. We purchase the gifts and prepare food
boxes for the families.
For more information- call 500-1019 from October
through December of each year.
We are always looking for new volunteers to help be a
part of this program. Check with us beginning in
October to find a job that will be rewarding for you.
