NEW - To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Chrsitmas Connection we are making shopping a little easier for you! Check out the Christmas Connection AMAZON Wish List  link on our home page.  You can shop from the comfort of your home and either ship the items directly to Christmas Connection or to your house.  Please make sure all donated items are delivered to us by December 16, 2019.


You may also make a monetary donation to the Christmas Connection Program. Through your generous donations, Christmas Connection is able to assist vulnerable families within the Big Bend region, with critical support during the Christmas holiday (by meeting families’ basic needs, such as: food, clothing, linens, toiletries and gifts).

But Christmas Connection doesn't stop there! Funds raised during the holiday season are used throughout the year to assist families with paying a rent and/or utility bill and with learning how to manage their finances, in an effort to prevent homelessness. It is through your generous donation that vulnerable children, their parents and/or guardians are warm and fed. To help us celebrate the 40th anniversary, consider making a minimum $40 donation.

Catholic Charities’ Christmas Connection Program is happy to apply your donation directly to a specific family’s “case”, unless the family’s needs have already been met by another generous donor.
