Community Helping Place Spirit of Christmas
CHP Spirit of Christmas (formerly White Christmas) is the Community Helping Place’s holiday outreach program which provides eligible families a Christmas meal, vouchers for clothing & books and gifts for the children. The current pandemic has had an overwhelming impact on our community. Financial uncertainty has moved beyond those whose situation are already fragile to include those who have not had to worry about financial insecurity. Your donation of food, toys and money will go a long way in providing a special Christmas for these families.
Below is a list of food items that each family will receive this year, along with some cold items CHP will provide on the day of distribution. There is also a suggested toy list below; this is not an inclusive list. You are welcome to use your own creativity; we just ask no clothing as we do not get sizes of each child.

PLEASE DROP OFF ALL YOUR TIEMS AT CHP AT THE ROCK HOUSE ON 1127 HIGHWAY 52 EAST, DAHLONEGA, NO LATER THAN MONDAY, DECEMBER 7TH.

Food List for Spirit of Christmas:
2 cans green beans 2 boxes mac-n-cheese
2 cans corn 2 cans cranberry sauce
1 can chicken broth 2 cans fruit
1 box stuffing mix 1 can yams
1 box instant potatoes 1 box cornbread mix
1 container frosting 1 box cake/brownie mix
