Christmas Sponsorship

This year we want Christmas wishes to come true! Community Care requires significant financial support to deliver the programs and services that will assist those in the community who struggle to make ends meet. As temperatures become colder and everyday tasks become more and more difficult we respectfully ask that you please consider giving. Donate, so we can make sure everyone experiences a little joy this holiday season… Through the incredible generosity of our community, we strive to make sure that tummies are filled, beds are kept warm, lights are kept on, many shelter needs are met…and hope that families can enjoy a Christmas dinner, with presents under the tree. We can only do this through the thoughtfulness of people such as you. It is our hope that you will partner with us in making Christmas wishes come true! Let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
