For 40 years, Catholic Charities Christmas Connection has been helping Big Bend area families have brighter holidays and the chance to create memories that last a lifetime. That's why we always look forward to another year of filling holiday wishes and providing basic necessities to vulnerable families.
The Christmas Connection holiday tradition began in 1979 with the "25 Most Needy Cases," and the community's response was overwhelming. Last year, Christmas Connection assisted 458 families, all of whom had a joyful holiday thanks to your efforts. In 2020, Christmas Connection hopes to increase that number to 500 families in the Big Bend area. All of these families are referred to us by 30 different social service agencies across the region, and are helped regardless of their religion, race, or ethnic background.
You can help support the success of Christmas Connection by donating much-needed gift items, adopting a family, or volunteering to hold a collection drive. Thank you for your generosity in making the holidays so special for those who need it most.
