Food for Families and Smiles on children's faces.


Registration Has Closed for 2016.

Every Christmas there are children lacking life’s little things because their families are struggling financially and cannot afford the expense.

This program  is focused on Collecting and Distributing  Food and Toy donations To Children and their families during the Christmas Holidays. People struggling with difficult family, emotional, or employment problems. Single Parents and Seniors.  It makes a Big Difference in the lives of children.

Most of us enjoy the holiday season – a time of gift-giving, delicious family meals and warm memories. However, for less fortunate residents of our community, the holidays are a stressful time, with money and economic concerns often looming over the brightness of the season. We help offer a glimmer of hope through these tough and stressful times.

Most of us need a helping hand at one point, and it's good for both the giver and receiver

During this time Community Caring and Sharing Partners with Feed the Children and several other non-profits to bring together our resources.

Community Caring and Sharing  has provided low-income children and families with food, clothes and toys,  that where donated by our donors, sponsors, Clubs, Businesses, Churches, Groups and individuals.

Also For more than 15 years, during the holiday seasons, We worked with the local marines and the Toys for Tots Program.

Have a Look at our Previous Years


joyful Christmas to underprivileged children

The wish list given to the sponsor is thoughtfully prepared

Many children in our community return to school after the holidays in worn out uniforms, insufficient winter clothing, or needing school supplies replenished.

because a sponsor is able to feel a special connection with his/her “adopted” child. The sponsor receives the child’s first name and a personalized needs and wish list for the child. Other holiday assistance programs give sponsors minimum information such as “5-year-old boy” without any gift suggestions or host generic toy drives

as a way to give back to people in their community.

Making the season a little brighter

Tis the season of giving.

Dont be Embarrassed to Ask them for help. But Please, we ask  be sure to return the favor to those in need,  when you regain self-sufficiency.

Never let your personal pride get the better of you. If you have small children or others you need to provide for, swallow your pride and put your children first. Ask for help from a non-profit or a local charity,

Every year, as the holidays approach, families around the world gather together to celebrate with festive decorations, feasts of all flavors and varieties and often also an exchange of gifts. What’s very easy to forget during these times of feasting and celebrating is the fact that there are so many families in the world that are struggling just to put food on the table for the kids, holiday gifts and elaborate parties just aren’t in the picture for them. They desperate need the Christmas help that’s available for low income families
