Christmas will be here before you know it

Christmas will be here before you know it—so once again, we are gearing-up for the Community Christmas Program and asking for your help.

The Community Christmas Program provides Christmas presents for the children from around 50 local families. “It is heartbreaking to imagine what it would be like to have no gifts or toys at Christmas. The Community Christmas Program was started to make sure as many needy children as possible receive at least a few gifts. Sadly, there are many families who just cannot afford to purchase toys, clothes, or books at Christmas, so it is our hope to make their holiday special through this gift of giving.” said Dawn Grosse, Hermann’s school-based social worker and founder and co-director of the program.
