The need this year was greater than in past years as 180 children from 77 families applied for assistance. Through your generous donations of money, toys, hats, mittens and “adoption” of  kids, all the needs of these children were again met this year.

The Kiwanis Christmas Project is truly a community supported and worthwhile project and you, the residents, businesses, churches and organizations, embodied the true meaning of Christmas by giving to those less fortunate in our community. For this and so much more we are ever so thankful.

Once again, thank you all for your generous and heartfelt support of this worthwhile project.
Kiwanis Christmas Project Elves,
