Our Christmas Cheer Program has supported over 700 Macomb County Children since 2019.
Each fall DRIVE receives referrals of children who will need holiday support from local elementary schools, special education centers, shelters, churches, and other partner organizations. These children are all living at or below poverty level within our community, many of which without basics such as food and proper clothing.
Our goal during Christmas Cheer is to not only provide those basics but to also gift these children with the joy, love, and magic of the holiday season when they need it most!
This includes providing food, clothing, winter gear, boots, personal care items, and
(most magical of all) Christmas Wish List items to each child that is in need.
In our first year, we were able to support just over 100 children with this effort and with the continued support of our generous friends, donors, and volunteers, DRIVE has been able to increase the number of children we have gifted each year since!
In 2022, we were able to provide Christmas gifts for over 265 children and we cannot wait to see what will happen in 2023!
