Your support is invaluable to us, and there are various ways you can contribute to make the Holiday Assistance program a success.
Volunteer Your Time:
We need many helping hands during November and December. Volunteers play a critical role in reaching out to families, collecting gifts, sorting items, and ensuring the smooth distribution of holiday cheer. Your time and effort can bring hope and happiness to those in need during this special time of year.
Those interested in lending a hand should contact:
Kerri Potter, Emergency Enrollment and Services Manager

If you prefer to contribute items, we welcome new, toys and new clothing that can bring joy to children and families. Your generosity can light up the faces of young ones and make the holiday season truly special for them and their families.
Gift Giving Guidelines:
Community Action Angels, kindly ask that donated items remain unwrapped. Our unique "holiday shop" model at the Community Action Angel's Warehouse allows parents and guardians to personally select gifts for their children. Keeping items unwrapped empowers families, letting them choose presents that resonate with their children's preferences and needs.
Additionally, please note that we can only accept new items. Gently used items, while appreciated, cannot be accepted. This policy ensures that every child receives brand-new gifts, enhancing the magic of the holiday season.
Donate Gift Cards:
Gift cards offer flexibility and choice to the recipients, allowing them to purchase items that suit their unique requirements. Your gift cards can empower individuals and families, giving them the freedom to select what they need the most.
Monetary donations are incredibly valuable as they allow us to address specific needs efficiently. Your financial support enables the Action Angels to provide essential resources and assistance to those who need it the most.
