December 2016 — SHOP-4-CHRISTMAS Volunteers having fun after a day of giving!


The DeKalb County Christmas Bureau interviews and matches families with companies, agencies, and individuals that would like to provide children of need with Christmas gifts.

Referrals are accepted September 1st – October 15th and the Application Process must be completed by November 10th.
phone: 260-925-9200 EXT 305

Our SHOP-4-CHRISTMAS program was designed for Families that are not able to be helped through the Christmas Bureau or other agencies.  Our Thrift Shop is transformed into a Toy Store with new and gently used toys, books, and outerwear, etc — and families are given a private opportunity to do their own shopping on a specific day.

Christmas carols play as volunteers help the parents with their shopping, and the food pantry provides each family with a holiday surprise. Families leave feeling proud that they were able to participate in providing a Christmas celebration for their loved ones.

NOTE: Space is limited with both programs, and all applications are accepted on a First-Come/First-Served basis until full. NO Christmas assistance of any kind can be offered after November 10th.

Please call or email the Christmas Bureau to request additional information.
