Sandusky County Community Christmas

Helping Sandusky County families in need during the holiday season. Electronic applications are available now until 4 p.m. on Nov. 30.

Helping families in need during the holidays

Sandusky County Community Christmas is a coalition of local organizations that wish to help families in need this holiday season. 

Community Christmas applications will be available now until 4 p.m. on Nov. 30, 2020. Applications must be completed by this deadline. Only one application is allowed per address—multiple family homes should fill out one application.

Applications for assistance will be different this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health restrictions. We are moving all applications to online submission only. No paper applications will be released this year. Those who need assistance filling out an online application may call our application assistance hotline number at 567-342-1450.

Families with children 12 and under are able to request clothing and toys for their children. Seniors, aged 65 and older, may apply for a standard care package which includes household items and personal care items. Households with qualifying children and/or seniors may also request holiday meal assistance.

Please note that although Community Christmas would like to grant all requests for assistance, the need in our community is great, and therefore, we cannot guarantee that every request will be fulfilled.  Families will be notified if they have been matched with a donor. You will receive your notification by Dec. 7, 2020, along with instructions on how your gifts will be made available to you.

Applications are available at this link.

Sandusky County Community Christmas helps to connect organizations and individuals who wish to help those who are struggling to put food on their tables and provide gifts for their children this holiday season. By acting collaboratively, we are able to avoid duplication of giving, and therefore, reach a greater number of families. Partnering organizations include Toys for Tots, Fremont City Schools, Sandusky County Board of Developmental Disabilities, GLCAP, LIFT Parish and the Sandusky County Food Pantry.
