The Christmas Place

Together we Can Make a Difference

The Christmas Place of Operation Sharing and CAS Angel Tree will work together this year in reaching out to more families, combining resources to offer assistance during the holiday season. By joining our efforts we will provide a hand up to families living in poverty and to families in crisis during the holiday season.

Please help us in supporting the families and children in Oxford County!

Donations of new toys and gifts for babies to teens ($10 to $40+); Moms and Dads and Grandmas and Grandpas ($10 to $15). Any gift you would give your own family will be perfect.

Gifts for men and teen boys remain our biggest shortfall.

The Power of Hope will be distributing pajama packs too!
