Secret Families Christmas Charity strives to bring the Jay County Community together. They work to gather resources and volunteers to provide Christmas for families that otherwise may not have Christmas. The families receive clothing, toys, household items, a family Bible, children’s Bibles, a gift card, and a Christmas tree. 

Secret Families Christmas Charity provided Christmas to 115 families in 2021. The money donated will offset the costs of items for families, wrapping paper, and other various expenses. Volunteers will gather to shop, wrap, and deliver items purchased. They hope to teach the next generation the importance of serving and giving back to the community. 

Secret Families Christmas Charity always needs volunteers to help shop, wrap, and deliver on December 10th. Visit secretfamiliesjc.org to learn more and register to volunteer or give a monetary donation. Donations can also be sent to Secret Families of Jay County, P.O. Box #4, Dunkirk, IN 47336.
