Each year, the staff at the DAC try to give back to their community by supporting a couple of local families who are currently experiencing economic hardship for one reason or another. We here at the DAC would love to see all children have a Merry Christmas and want to help out in a way that we are able to.
How it works:
Every Friday at the DAC is Casual Friday for our staff. This means our staff are allowed to wear work-appropriate shirts with writing, a hat, or sweatpants. Each staff contributes $1+ on each Friday they decide to participate. All of the funds are collected throughout the year and put together to help support children in our community who, without help, may not get to have the Christmas every child deserves.
In the past we have supported an entire Christmas for 2+ (our highest was 6) families but the need is always so much more. For this reason, we are going to be limiting the gifts to one or two per child so we are able to help out more families and this way we can ensure more children at least get something to open on Christmas morning. If you feel there is a child or children you know who could benefit from our program, please fill out the form below. Please know that we will be unable to help every family that is nominated, but we do our best.
Nomination deadline is Thursday, December 1st at 8am. Chosen families will be called on Monday, December 19th for notification that they have been chosen for this year’s DAC Christmas Cares. Gifts will be available for pick-up from the DAC between December 20 and 22, just before the holiday from 7:30am-4:00pm. At this time, we are unable to deliver gifts.
Nominations are now closed. We look forward to helping others in our community next year.
