What is One Stop Community Christmas?
One Stop is a collaborative effort of many different area organizations (civic groups, schools, businesses, aid organizations, churches, sororities, healthcare providers, etc.) to come together at Christmas time and provide help and hope to families from 7 counties during the holiday season.
One Stop is an effort to band together and help even more families who need it, while making sure to provide a really positive experience for everyone involved. One Stop is about the power of partnership to make a difference in the community.
Last year (2016), they helped 861 families and were able to provide a wonderful Christmas experience for 2,051 kids!
