Christmas is a time when the Christmas story is taught and food boxes, toys, clothes and gifts are distributed. Many children receiving gifts are in the sponsorship program but we also receive referrals through social workers, police and fire department personnel, pastors, school teachers and relatives.   
Each child receives at least 7 wrapped gifts. Children with sponsors receive more than 7 gifts. 
Each student in Head Start in Lee and Wolfe counties receives a gift bag with toys, socks, underwear, etc. 
The Lacy family assists with Shop With A Cop in Powell Co. 100 kids are taken shopping by officers.  We provide photos with Santa Garland for the kids to take home.

Money is always a wonderful gift  to help purchase last minute items or to provide gas money for deliveries. 
We do have storage room so shopping for seasonal clearance items is a great  way to help us and save money!     We are also in the process of building a warehouse.
