Each year, the Christmas Program distributes boxes of gifts and clothing to more than 1,700 children of low income families throughout the state. Families must be income eligible following federal guidelines and must agree not to seek help from any other source. Our program is available to any eligible child in the state of Maine between the ages of 0-12.
Our hope is to provide a complete basic Holiday package to each child that we serve. We do our best to match the interests of the child as identified by the applicant, using identified age and gender as guidelines.
Boxes consist of such items as a warm outfit, underwear, socks, mittens, winter hat, books, games, and toys.
