Christmas in Jefferson County, a project of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce, has announced the registration dates for 2020.

Sign-ups for families needing assistance through the “Christmas in Jefferson County” program will begin on October 29th.  Sign-ups will be held Thursday, October 29th and Friday, October 30th from 8:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. and Monday, November 2nd from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Due to restrictions with COVID-19, we will have the sign-ups in three different locations:

The program is designed to assist families and individuals who can’t otherwise afford food and toys during the Christmas season.  Families or individuals may sign up for a food basket.  If the family has children, the program provides toys for any child between birth and age 12.  Two toys or gift items may be requested at sign-up for each child in the family.

A family head of household should come to sign up, bringing the following information:

  • Evidence of monthly income (paycheck stub, Family First or food stamp documentation-must provide food stamp letter, SSI or Social Security documentation, etc.)
  • Social Security cards for head(s) of household
  • Phone number where they can be reached
  • Evidence of address (utility bill)
  • Anyone other than parents applying for toys, must show proof of guardianship
