Each year, HOPE staff and hundreds of volunteers host Christmas in the City for registered clients with the help of local businesses who sponsor the event and host donation boxes. The holiday season is a time of joy, but many local families do not have the means to celebrate Christmas the way many of us are accustomed. HOPE Helps, and our Interfaith Coalition, want to be sure every family has a wonderful holiday. During this event we give out toys, games, books, clothes, holiday meals, blankets, socks and underwear, jeans, and family portraits. In addition to these items, clients get to enjoy a day of live entertainment, delicious lunch and fun for the whole family! If you have a business that is interested in sponsoring the event, please email email@example.com. If you are interested in hosting a box, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you can join us in creating a wonderful Christmas for so many deserving families.

To pull off this event we need lots of volunteers. We need help with setup, entertainment, tear-down, clean-up, the list goes on… Each year this is a magical event for our local children because our community cares and volunteers.
