Holiday Support Program


Holiday Support Program

 Help give someone a merry Christmas!

Since its implementation in 2010, the number of families seeking support through our Holiday Support Program has grown each year. Last year, we introduced our Adopt an Ornament concept in the hopes of being able to  provide even more children and families with a happier holiday because we always receive more applications than  we can reasonably sponsor. Well, because of COVID-19 and the effects the pandemic is having on families and  communities, the need for assistance is greater than ever before and we need your help!  

Here’s how to assist our program: 

  • Adopt one or more Ornaments (each one represents a child or adult in need) 
  • Donate items or gifts to be used toward any of the ornaments 
  • Donate new toiletries, household supplies, non-expired groceries, or gift cards for the families or other items on our Wish List
  • Make a monetary donation and we will gladly do the shopping for you 
  • Contribute to our Annual Toy, Gift & Stuff the Stocking Collection Drive (goal is to stuff 200 stockings) 

Please let us know if you, and maybe your family, friends, or co-workers can help us help others this holiday  season! Our organization knows that without your support, we would not be successful in our efforts to improve  the quality of life for the low-income families that we serve. Your help was and is very much appreciated in  making these families’ holiday season brighter and encouraging a more positive outlook for their future. We do not  believe in giving handouts, but in giving a hand up! 

Please feel free to share this request for support with others you think might be interested, and do not hesitate to  contact us with any questions about the program. And please remember, wish lists are just that, wishes. You are  not obligated to get all or any of the items listed should you choose to support our program families. 

This year’s Ornaments for adoption and program guidelines are below and can also be found on our Facebook page, @raacommittee. To adopt an ornament or support a family, please contact Rose Eichelberger, HSP  Coordinator, at (314) 925-0750 or use our Contact Us form. For more information about  our organization, feel free to contact us. Thank you again for your hand up to us and to the program’s families! 

A special thanks to our 2023 Holiday Support Program supporters and sponsors
