Community Supported for Over 100 years - "Doing the Most Good" in the Fox Cities!

During the 2017 Christmas season, our non-profit faith-based organization, with the public’s generosity, helped to make it a much brighter Christmas for thousands of families living in poverty locally. We are so grateful to our many generous donors and volunteers. Thank you all for making this and much more possible!

Funds collected during the 2017 Christmas Red Kettle campaign also helps out with year round social service programs such as an Emergency Food Pantry along with a Noon Feeding program. Our dedicated bell ringing volunteers were at the kettles ringing for 8,683 hours.  That is a ten percent increase from the previous season. Thanks so much for your tremendous help!

Our ringers and generous donors helped to make all ten of our red kettle match days successful. 2017 Match Results here.
