You can provide a magical experience for a child on Christmas morning.

Board the Volunteer & Information Center’s CHRISTMAS EXPRESS!

Qualified and selected children of families in need of financial assistance receive gifts specially selected by volunteers who shop and wrap them. Families that are registered with Volunteer and Information Center do not receive help from other community Christmas programs. We adopt all the children in the family. Very few programs in our community can adopt children over the age of 12. We are fortunate to have the community support that allows our program to adopt all ages.

This year (2021) please help us provide a magical experience for a child on Christmas morning. The deadline for being a Santa Helper is Friday, October 15, 2021.
