Summary: Secret Santa Christmas gift giving program for underpriveledged children

Children who have received basic health care from Pillars Community Health are eligible to receive Christmas gifts from the Secret Santa program. Gifts are based on a wishlist filled out by the child or parent and include clothes, pajamas, school supplies, books, toys & games. The project runs year-round with the gather of gifts and donations but the main part of the project runs from September to December. Letters go out to eligible families in September, letters are returned in October, children are 'adopted' out to partnering organizations in October, gifts are collected and packed in November, and everything is distributed the 2nd week of December. Funds will be used for purchasing needed gifts and supplies for distribution. Club members will help with administrative tasks, soliciting donations, distributing collections boxes, and collecting, packing & distributing gifts.
