Using community goodwill and contributions, the Holiday Cheer program offers aid to local families and individuals who need assistance and cheer during the holiday season. To qualify, recipients must be at or below 200% of the poverty level in the Philomath area.
The program provides gifts to children 0 – 18 years of age. Food and hygiene baskets, decorations, and wrapping paper are provided for their families. In 2019, the program “adopted” 62 families (105 adults and 147 children.) This program aims to make the holidays just a little happier for each of the lives it touches.
