Christmas:

Applications for Christmas assistance are taken at The CLHC Community Thanksgiving Dinner.  Parents are asked to provide us with the number of people living in their household, the number of adults employed and the total amount of income per household. Educators from the Henry County Schools also supply us with the name of children who may have been left out of the application process. All applications are cross checked with The Salvation Army, The Westminster Community Center and shop with the Fireman to avoid duplication.

Local Churches and service groups then contact us for specific information on children that they wish to buy for.  We supply the first name of a child, their age, clothing sizes and wish list.

The family of every child who receives Christmas assistance from the CLHC also receives a food basket.    Over 235 children were provided toys and clothing.

Thanksgiving:

The Tuesday before Thanksgiving is always one of the busiest days of the year at The Christian Love Help Center.  Preparations for this holiday meal have started days earlier and  come together as merchants, elected officials and volunteers from local churches and service agencies assist the CLHC in providing Thanksgiving Dinner to people who would otherwise go without this holiday meal. Volunteers and a local Church begin the process of making ready 35 turkeys, and 15 hams, vegetables, potatoes, rolls, drinks and a large selection of deserts.  Delivery to shut ins and senior citizens is also provided.  Fellowship on this day is felt by all who attend.  

Back to School:

The week before school starts every year The Christian Love Help Center provides children from low income families with school supplies.  Children K-6 receive backpacks and school supplies while grades 7-12 receive school supplies only.  Our Back to School Program has shown a more dramatic increasing the numbers than any of our other programs, increasing from 140 to 577 children in just four years.
