Several years ago we created a Holiday Giving Program, to allow us to help as many people as possible have a happier holiday season. Among the many individuals we serve, there are a number of parents who are financially unable to make this holiday season special for their children. During the holiday season many CCDS staff participate in our Holiday Giving Program through a variety of ways; from adopting a family or individual from our Holiday Giving Tree to helping wrap and drop off gifts! For more info please contact Marissa VanDenburgh or Kathleen Pivacek.
