Sandusky County Community Christmas

Helping Sandusky County families in need during the holiday season. Electronic applications are available Nov. 1, 8 a.m., until Nov. 30, 4 p.m.

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 2021 holiday season. 

Community Christmas applications will be available Nov. 1, 8 a.m., until Nov. 30, 4 p.m. 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 only be accepted via electronic submission. All fields must be completed in order to submit the form. Those who need assistance filling out an online application or have any questions may call our application assistance hotline number at 567-342-1450 or emailing

Seniors (age 65 and older) may apply for care boxes including some of the most requested gift items (no wish list items are to be submitted). 

Children (ages 12 and under) will be given the opportunity to provide a wish list as well as clothing sizes via the application form. The wish list is not a guarantee for any of those items to be provided, but will serve as guidance to donors for the interests of each child.

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. 6, 2021, along with instructions on how your gifts will be made available to you.


Applications are available at this link. Please note that the application will be available Nov. 1, 8 a.m.-Nov. 30, 4 p.m.

• Applicants must provide the last four digits of Social Security numbers for all listed household members

Want to help?

Community Christmas is also seeking the help of those in the community who are willing to donate gifts and food to families, or would like to serve as a volunteer this Christmas season. Contact our team today to see how you can help at 567-342-1450, or email for a link to complete a sponsorship form.

Those who wish to donate may do so by making a check payable to Sandusky County Food Pantry with "Community Christmas" on the memo line, mailed to Community Christmas, 1907 W. State St., Fremont, OH 43420.


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.
