Goals

Provide gifts to children 18 years old and younger.

– PROGRAM OVERVIEW –

This year marks the 95th year of the program, which is based on community participation. Your support will help us provide and pack food and toys during the Christmas holiday season to many families in need living with Hood River County.

Approximately 480 families (over 1,900 men, women, and children) were registered last year and were provided with food and toy assistance.

Each year, families are required to register for a Christmas food/toy basket. Applicants must show proof of Hood River County residence, meet State of Oregon Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), and show proof of all children living within the home. Each child must be 18 years and under to receive a Christmas Gift, which is based on their age and gender.
