As the holiday season is quickly approaching, the Cheboygan Area Jaycees are beginning the 2013 Christmas Wishes Program. In cooperation with the Salvation Army & Straits Area Federal Credit Union, we are looking forward to helping many area families who find themselves in need this holiday season.
It is the generous support of our community that enables us to continue such an important project. Although we certainly acknowledge the difficult economic times, we are firm believers in the old adage that “every little bit helps” and we truly appreciate every donation.
Since beginning this valuable program over nine years ago, we have been able to help hundreds of area families; whether it was with winter clothing, toys for children, household goods or necessities such as groceries.
Families are selected based on need and are carefully screened by not only our committee, but the Salvation Army. You can be assured that 100% of your generous donation will go to help an area family in need. Families must fill out an application and attach a letter of circumstance by December 1.
If you would like to help us on this important mission, please download the donation form below and return to the Cheboygan Jaycees by Friday, November 30. If you are interested in adopting a family, please contact Jade Hunt at 231-420-2555 between the hours of 9:00am & 4:00pm, Monday – Friday.
If your family is in need of help this Christmas Season or if you know of a family that would qualify for assistance; simply click on the application form below and follow the instructions.
