The Spirit of Christmas (formerly White Christmas) is our annual holiday outreach which serves Lumpkin County Families in need. The Spirit of Christmas provides gifts to eligible children (no matter their naughty or nice status), clothing vouchers redeemable at our clothing store for all members of the household, as well as a festive dinner.

In 2020 we:

  • Served 278 families; toys for 275 children
  • Distributed 7,616 lbs of food; 110 vouchers valued at $4,183 were redeemed.

If you would like to donate to help families and elders for the Spirit of Christmas Campaign we accept new unwrapped toys all year-round. We also gratefully accept monetary donations to our program. You can do so Or by writing checks payable to Spirit of Christmas.  Please mail checks to
