Services - Holiday Assistance

Get Holiday Assistance

CAC’s Holiday Program provides gifts for children and food for families and individuals. Holiday gifts are provided to children ages newborn to 18 years old. Families, couples and individuals receive a holiday food box in addition to regular food pantry visits. CAC holiday programs are funded by donors and therefore quantities may be limited. Clients will receive registration information from CAC.

The 2021 Holiday Program including holiday food and Adopt-a-Family/gifts for kids is now full and registration is closed.


Give Holiday Assistance

The Holiday Program is designed to give an extra bit of help during the Holiday season to local families who have come to CAC during the past year for assistance. Many times families who are struggling to get by do not have extra income for holiday gifts or celebrations. Through the generosity of donors, CAC provides families and individuals in need the means to celebrate the season. CAC’s holiday program is completely donor dependent, providing holiday food to about 1,000 families and gifts to about 1,400 children a year.

Adopt-a-Family for the Holidays!

You can make a child’s holiday season a little happier! View families and children’s wish lists online. Select a family and “adopt” online. Donors are asked to spend $75-$100 per child and bring their new and unwrapped gifts to CAC. Families will be available for adoption on our website beginning in early November.

Give Holiday Food Gift Cards

Grocery store gifts cards give families the gift of choice for their holiday celebrations! Please give Publix & Kroger gift cards in denominations of $10, $20 and $30. $10 helps an individual, $20 helps a couple and $30 helps a family. Bring cards to CAC or donate online and designate your contribution to “food.”

Give Food or Hold a Holiday Food Drive

Give food for the CAC Food Pantry and help local families with groceries this holiday season. Please deliver food donations by December 1 if possible.
