Christmas Basket and Holiday Celebration

xmas_007Each year, hundreds of local children go through the holiday season without a gift to unwrap or experiencing the joy of a holiday celebration.

xmas_025 CITC’s annual Christmas Basket program provides holiday presents to children of low-income families and offers a Family Holiday Celebration featuring games, crafts, cultural activities, photos with Santa and refreshments.

Thanks to generous donor support, more than 1,400 children participate in the Christmas Basket celebration each year.
