The best gifts are those given from the heart and there is no shortage of opportunities awaiting you this holiday season. The 2022 Patrick County Christmas Cheer campaign is now in full swing, and organizers are seeking individuals and organizations to bring smiles to children’s faces and restore hope to families in need. This year, the program received requests from more than 168 families who need help for more than 365 children in Patrick County.
The goal of Christmas Cheer is to provide warm clothing and a few age-appropriate toys for our community’s families in need. We have tags with children’s wish list items and sizes ready for pick up in several locations, including First Horizon Bank and Legacy Insurance in Stuart; Primitive Coffee in Meadows of Dan, Boyd’s Family Restaurant in Ararat; Pickle & Ash in Patrick Springs; and Crossroads Café in Woolwine. Individuals and organizations can stop in any of these locations to select their child or email email@example.com.
Those not interested in shopping may make monetary donations by mailing a donation to P.O. Box 222, Stuart, VA 24171. Please make your check payable to Patrick County Christmas Cheer.
Donations are significantly down this year to date, and any amount is gratefully accepted.
Grab a group of friends or your family and pick a tag of a local child to make their holiday bright. Your generous support is the reason for the season and will help a neighbor in need.
