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 away 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+ families but the need is always so much more. Due to this we are hoping to help more families with a gift or two per child. We would like to see more children be able to at least get a little something for Christmas so we are changing it up this year.  If you feel there are 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 Monday, December 6th. Chosen families will be called on Tuesday December 14th for notification that they have been chosen for this years DAC Christmas Cares. Gifts will be available for pick-up from the DAC between December 16 and 17th, just before the holiday week from 7:30am-4:30pm. At this time, we are unable to deliver gifts.
