The mission of the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Christmas Mother program is to provide assistance in the form of new toys, books, clothing and food gift cards to qualifying children, families and seniors as we celebrate the holidays in our community.
Watch the time-lapse video below to see the Christmas Mother team in action!
What We Do
Work directly with the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Department of Social Services, schools and churches to identify individuals and families in need.
Encourage participation from local schools to provide gifts, donations and volunteers.
Arrange sponsors who provide toys, clothing, books and food to families or elders.
Shop year-round for clothing, toys, and gifts at reasonable prices and also purchase gift cards for food.
Accept gifts and donations of money, clothing, toys, books and food gift cards from those in the community who wish to share with others.
