Holiday Program

Voluntary Action Center is once again preparing for our annual Holiday Program. Our objective is to match families with children, people with disabilities, and seniors in need with individuals, families, businesses, or groups who wish to provide gifts and food for the holidays. In addition to toys, books, and games families often receive needed clothing and household supplies through this program. Each year VAC coordinates the collection and distribution of food and gifts for approximately 4,000 people.

In addition to accepting applications from families interested in assistance, we will also begin registering Sponsors for this year’s Holiday Program on Tuesday, September 5.
