Our Story

Our program exists due to the generosity of the public, schools, churches, businesses and many individuals that donate toys, food, money and many items, as well as their time. Since 1980 we have been assisting the lower income public of St. Thomas-Elgin to register themselves and/or their family for a little support that is meant directly for the Christmas season. We provide a hamper of food which includes cereal, cookies, canned goods, apples, potatoes as well as their choice of either turkey or ham, in order to make a complete Christmas dinner. 

Our “Support-A-Family” program allows you, to support a family in need in several ways. It actually costs between $200 to $300 to support a family with 2 children. We offer the opportunity to donate money, toys or food, or if you prefer you can actually go shopping to support a family. Pick any age of child (newborn to age 11) and have fun shopping! We will even provide the shopping list. This is a great teaching tool for the young children in your home as well as an alternative to purchasing gifts for each other that you may not need or want.

Our program depends on our dedicated volunteers and the great support and assistance from our local community groups like St Thomas Police & Fire Departments, Lions, Kinsmen and Rotary clubs, and many others. Without this support, we could not operate a successful program. As always, our need seems to be greater than our donations. Please help Christmas Care continue to help our community!

When looking for community programs to support, Christmas Care is one that is easy to support. Completely volunteer based with thousands of people being supported and every dollar going towards to the cause, I am proud to be a contributor.
