Christmas in Jefferson County

 

Christmas in Jefferson County is a program of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce that brings together all the resources of the community to provide food and toys to needy families of Jefferson County. The Chamber of Commerce and Family Resources Center coordinates all the activities and utilizes businesses, neighborhoods, churches, civic clubs and each school in Jefferson County. With the help of over 400+ volunteers, the Chamber brings together all these resources to provide assistance. In each of the past several years, over 650+ families and elderly citizens received Christmas food baskets and 700+ children received a bag of toys from the Angel Trees placed throughout the community.

Each October, individuals and families needing assistance (food and/or toy box) Must register during the period allotted. Each school sends home a letter with the registration requirements, location, dates and times; also, the information is posted on the Chamber's Event Calendar and Standard Banner Newspaper. If you are unable to make any of the three registration days, please call the Chamber office or Family Resource Center before the last registration day to see how we can assist you.

This program operates as a committee and is divided into two divisions: food and toys. Fred Taylor serves as Chair for the food division and Pam Dockery as Chair for the volunteers and Karen Hodge as Chair for the toy division. Anyone interested in serving on the Christmas in Jefferson County committee should call the Chamber office at (865) 397-9642. 

There are dedicated days to food drop-off and to toy drop-off at the National Guard Armory in Jefferson City; volunteers and the National Guard Armory are scheduled on these specified days to help inventory & box each item. Please have your donations available on the designated day to ensure as many people in the community will receive this great gift at such a difficult time.
