Support the CHS Holiday Gift Project

Please help us make the holidays happen for 200 children and adults in our area by supporting the 2013 CHS Holiday Gift Drive. Your donations of both money and gift cards help us provide a small gift for a local individual or family using the services of one of our programs. For many, this will be the only gift they receive during the holidays, and often these gifts are practical, useful, and accessible, designed to help each person have a bit brighter winter: from a warm winter coat to a cookware to fun toy for a child.

In these tough economic times, a little money goes a long way. By making a donation to the CHS Holiday Gift Project, you are helping your neighbors experience the joy of the holidays.
