Champaign County Community Christmas would like to extend a special thank you to the Champaign Cruisers Car Club. They generously give monetary donations, toys and their time to ensure a successful community outreach year after year. The Champaign Cruisers Car Club gather, set up and distribute the toys during our annual Distribution Day. Without their help, Christmas would be a little dimmer for some children in Champaign County.
Each year, in addition to the gift cards for the family, each child may choose a new toy as an extra gift for Christmas. It is always wonderful to see the children’s faces when they find out they can choose a new toy for themselves. In the year’s past we were able to bless each child with a new toy by partnering up with Toys for Tots. This year Toys for Tots is not assisting with the toy donations in the Clark/Champaign counties. In addition to monetary donations, we are in need of new toys to bless the children again this year. Please consider donating a toy for ages newborn to 18 years of age. If you would like to donate a toy, please drop off a new, unwrapped toy to your local church or the Caring Kitchen by Nov. 30.
We are also taking monetary donations through Nov. 30. Every dollar donated to this program is tax deductible and is used to help those in need. We are able to do this because of the many volunteers who donate their time in order to help families have a brighter holiday during Christmas.
Donations may be sent to: Champaign County Community Christmas, P.O. Box 294, Urbana, OH 43078. We thank you in advance for donations. We would not able to do what we do without the generous generosity for those in our community.
