Christmas Mother needs donations

Published 11:40 am Tuesday, May 8, 2018

The Cumberland Community Christmas Mother committee met May 7 and plans are underway for another year of serving children, teens, senior adults and families in Cumberland County. As we plan give away dates and other events for the Christmas Season, we encourage area churches to assist us in our efforts. The needs are always many and often unpredictable. Outside of gifts to children and gift bags to seniors, the Christmas Mother program helps with families in need throughout the year including those who have suffered loss through home fires, those who are in foster care, and those who are in general need of assistance, all on a case-by-case basis.

Funding is limited so we encourage you to remind your church of the importance of financial support and how this program also serves as a support to Cumberland County.

Volunteers, financial support and gifts are all needed year-round. Let’s make this a blessed Christmas season for our Cumberland County children, youth and seniors.
