The Union County Christmas Bureau needs your help to help those less fortunate in Union County this holiday season. Please consider volunteering your time or donating much needed gifts and food for children age 18 and younger in Union County. There are several ways to give back:
Sign up to volunteer to help between Nov. 2 and Dec. 21. Opportunities include processing family applications and helping at the Monroe Mall location of the Christmas Bureau.
Unwrapped gifts are needed early! Please drop your donations off at the Christmas Bureau location (Suite 200) at the Monroe Mall (rear of former Sears building) between Nov. 2 and Dec. 16.
Prefer to shop online instead? Buy from the Union County Christmas Bureau Amazon Wish List.
Pick up empty stockings from the Christmas Bureau starting Nov. 2, fill them and bring back by Dec. 16. Click here for stocking stuffer ideas. Consider making baby and teenager stockings which often run low.
Sponsor one or more families by contacting us via email or call 704-296-4312. This is an opportunity to sponsor a child or a family and fulfill all of their wishes! All donations are due at the Christmas Bureau by Dec. 16.
All families we serve will receive non-perishable food along with their gifts for their holiday dinner. Food donations will be collected later in the season from Nov. 30 to Dec. 16.
