• Christmas Food Basket

Central Services provides a food basket for eligible families at Christmastime. This is separate from our emergency food pantry. Residents of Hamblen County, with or without children, may apply to receive this basket to prepare a Christmas dinner.

• Christmas Toys Program

Central Services provides toys for Christmas presents to children of eligible families in Hamblen County.
When signing up for the program, parents and children pick specific toys or types of toys the child would prefer. These requests are placed on Angel Trees throughout the county, so community members can pick a child and buy them their gift! Extra gifts are given too, with a huge volunteer event to gather these toys and pack Santa's Sleigh with each child's bag! The parents pick up the gifts close to Christmas, in a black bag so the children cannot see where their gifts came from. It is up to the parent to wrap and give the gifts to keep the magic of Christmas alive.

• Pre-teen Present Program

Since children ages 10-12 tend to be harder to shop for and typically get less community-donated gifts, the Preteen Presents Program ensures that this age group is not forgotten at Christmastime!
If you would like to donate items specifically for this program, please call our office.
