Holiday Program

The Holiday Program provides Thanksgiving and/or Christmas assistance to children and families by matching businesses, church and community groups, and individuals with those in need. Qualifying families submit an application to DSS and provide a list of the names, ages, and clothing sizes of children in the household. Sponsors can then provide their match family with food, grocery store gift cards, or gifts for the children. In addition to sponsors, DSS collaborates with other agencies such as SERVE, Salvation Army, and the American Legion to provide families in need with holiday assistance. The Holiday Program allows disadvantaged members of our community to have a better holiday season.
