Holidays are a special time of year at Care Center where many volunteers come together to provide a little extra blessing to local families during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Hundreds of families are assisted during the holiday season through our annual food drive, Christmas gifts that are provided to children, and more.
Volunteers are the biggest asset during the holidays. They help keep Care Center rolling by packing food boxes, delivering gifts and food to families, wrapping Christmas gifts, or sponsoring families during the holiday season.
