OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Through generous donations from our community and volunteers with big hearts to put in the work, we strive to bring greater Christmas joy to local underprivileged children and their families in the Ozarks who may not otherwise experience it.

WHAT WE DO

We reach out to local schools to request a list of eligible children who may benefit from our program.  

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CHARITIES? 

GOC sends the school a form for parents to complete, which asks for specific toys on their child's wish list and also asks if there are any basic needs for their child, such as clothing and shoes.

Therefore, not only does the child receive a gift from their personal wish list,

but we are also fulfilling basic human needs.

To top it off, we have a loyal sponsor, who provides a full Christmas Dinner

for the whole Family to enjoy, which is delivered to their home on Christmas Eve. 

If you would like to donate...

YOUR GIFT WILL MAKE A REAL IMPACT ON LOCAL CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES.

Thanks to the generous support of donors, Children will wake up Christmas morning and feel the joy and hope that the holiday represents.
