What we do?
We provide a modest donation of gifts and groceries with a sense of caring and understanding. We do this through providing families with a wonderful Holiday dinner, general food needs for a week, and gifts for the children. With each year that passes we try to increase the number of families that we can assist, as the need grows stronger every year.
Who are we?
Families 4 Christmas, started as a group of families that joined together in 2004 with the expressed purpose of helping families in need, while teaching our own families and children the importance of giving and helping others. Our shared principle belief is that "giving" is the true spirit of the holiday season. We would like to continue this belief by exposing our children to the joy of giving.
The first year, we were able to help many families and since then the organization has grown. What started out as an informal group of families that shared the same values has now been formalized into a non-profit 501c organization. The 501c status helps us expand our mission at a time of extreme economic hardship. We provide a modest donation of gifts and groceries with a sense of caring and understanding. We do this throuh providing families with a wonderful Holiday dinner, general food needs for a week, and gifts for the children. This is a community based organization where the volunteers shop, wrap and deliver to each recipient family. We are opening the doors to others that want to help local families and be a part of this mission of "Giving".
Respect & Privacy
We take the issue of privacy and respect for the families that we are honored to serve very seriously. All information that is provided to Families 4 Christmas is not shared with anyone. We take confidentiality very seriously. Families who volunteer do not deliver to the communities in which they live. The founders of the organization are the only ones who have access to any of the information provided to Families 4 Christmas.
When do Families receive the gifts and food?
Volunteers make all of the deliveries directly to the families’ homes in December. Families are contacted by our organization to arrange delivery.
