Christmas in Jefferson County
Christmas in Jefferson County is a program of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce that brings together all the resources of the community to provide food and toys to needy families of Jefferson County. The Chamber of Commerce and Family Resources Center coordinates all the activities and utilizes businesses, neighborhoods, churches, civic clubs and each school in Jefferson County. With the help of over 400 volunteers, the Chamber brings together all these resources to provide assistance. In each of the past several years, over 650+ families and elderly citizens received food baskets and 700+ children received a bag of toys from the Angel Trees placed throughout the community.
This program operates as a committee and is divided into two divisions: food and toys. Fred Taylor is serving as Chair for the food division and Pam Dockery as Chair for the toy division. Anyone interested in serving on the Christmas in Jefferson County committee should call the Chamber office at (865) 397-9642.
There are dedicated days to food drop-off and to toy drop-off at the National Guard Armory in Jefferson City; volunteers and the National Guard Armory are scheduled on these specified days to help inventory & box each item. Please have your donations available on the designated day to ensure as many people in the community will receive this great gift at such a difficult time.
