Christmas in July

Thursday, July 9

Christmas in July is a wonderful event and fundraiser that brings awareness to VAC and our year round needs that assist our neighbors in Boone County with basic needs and emergency services. Kilgore’s Medical Pharmacy is back as the presenting sponsor! VAC is so thankful for the support of Missouri United Methodist Church and Kilgore’s for helping to put this event on for our clients.

Here is how you can support VAC. Purchase a raffle ticket(s). Each ticket purchased enters you into a raffle drawing for various prizes that are listed on below. Raffle tickets are $10 each or ten for $75. We asked some donors why they donate, here is what was shared.

“Giving to VAC is a no-brainer. Our money is helping those in the community who need our help the most. And the temporary services VAC provides for the individual/family in need will make a lifelong impact. And we know that if it weren’t for VAC, the needs would most likely go unmet, which can lead to larger issues such as homelessness, illnesses, hunger and so much more. It really isn’t a choice of should we give, but how much can we give?”

To show our support to the wonderful business community that has supported VAC over the past several years, we purchased gift certificates to use as prizes. We send a special thanks to Stoney Creek Inn, Skylark Bookstore and My Sister’s Circus for their generous donations to Christmas in July.

Due to COVID-19, city and county restrictions we are making some changes. MUMC is still planning a meal for VAC clients to enjoy and working on a special visit from Santa to deliver gifts to the kids.
