Their Purpose: “To bring the Jay County Community together as a whole. Working together gathering resources and volunteering our time, we can provide Christmas to families right here in our own county that otherwise may not be having a Christmas this year.” Volunteers get together on one day to shop, wrap, and deliver items purchased from donations raised. They serve the entire family providing a complete Christmas including clothes, toys, Christmas tree, household goods, and a family Bible.
Secret Families Christmas Charity believes in “teaching and showing the next generation the importance of serving and giving back to their community."
Funds donated by First Bank of Berne will be used for the 2020 Christmas season. To get involved or make a donation email firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail to Secret Families Christmas Charity Jay County, PO Box 4, Dunkirk, IN 47336.
