“I wanted to take the time to thank you for the gifts you gave my kids and me. I really appreciate it and it means so much to me to know someone out there cares enough to help a family in a time of need.” — CCWRC Holiday Sponsorship Recipient, 2016
During the 2016 season, 214 survivors and their children benefited from the program with the outstanding support of community members like you! We hope that you will consider sponsoring an individual or family this year!
“I wish sponsors could see the clients’ faces because most of them are in tears and they are really appreciative to get their baskets” – Vanda, CCWRC Staff
What will families receive?
Each person in a family will receive a $50 gift card and a gift basket from their sponsor. The basket may include a variety of small items, such as holiday fun stuff, toys/games for children, kitchen items, pampering products, etc.
Do I have to sponsor on my own?
No! Groups are encouraged to sponsor a family!
Sounds great! How do I sign up?

“Although we ask for the gifts to be unwrapped, we do ask donors to provide wrapping paper so that clients can wrap the gifts themselves and provide their kids a ‘surprise from Santa Clause.'” — Mike, CCWRC Volunteer
“The CCWRC Holiday Sponsorship program has benefited countless victims and their families over the past several years by helping them to make their holidays a little brighter. Many clients would have very little–if anything–to provide to their families for the holidays without the program. The overwhelming support our clients have received through the generosity of our community sponsors has been incredible.” — Jeremy, CCWRC Staff
