The Holiday Program 

The holidays can be a difficult time for many in our community. Give the Gift of Choice this holiday season!

What is the Holiday Program?

This annual program seeks to assist clients with the un-affordability of the December holiday season. We do this by distributing angel tree gifts, gift cards and extra food to participants.

Who is eligible?

We take an approach similar to food bank eligibility. With an understanding of the program and its intentions, we believe the participants are the best people to decide their eligibility as they are the experts in their own life.

Other FAQs

What about the Community Christmas Dinner?

The Community Christmas Dinner is NOT a program of Community Connections, it is an event organized by independent volunteers in the community every year. However, we usually are given sign-up sheets for the dinner, so look for those at Food Bank and Drop-In.
