Christmas Program

Barbara C. Beazley recognized the need in the county to assist disadvantaged children and started the Foundation’s Christmas program many years ago. 

During the holiday season, children of families referred by the Columbia County school system and social service agencies are sponsored for holiday gifts. Local schools, businesses, churches and families donate Christmas gifts to include clothing, toys, school supplies, and various other items to bring joy and comfort to these families during the holidays.

Through the generosity of community sponsors, 707 children were assisted through the 2016 Christmas Program. A total of $4,171 was raised, and the 19 children that we were unable to obtain private sponsors for were sponsored by the Foundation.  

Thank you to all those volunteers who give their time and hard work to make this program such a success each year.   If you would like information on Christmas sponsorship or would like to learn more about the Christmas Program and the Foundation, please email the Foundation at .

Sponsorship is needed by November 1st and tentative gift distribution will occur around the second week of December. If you would like information on Christmas sponsorship or to learn more about the Foundation please contact us via email at .
