Christmas Gift Program
Hosted By The Campbell Seventh Day Adventist Church
The Christmas Gift Program is an outreach program hosted by Campbell SDA Church, non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization (Tax ID 94-12798). We are dedicated to fulfilling the needs of families primarily living in this area.
Donations need to reach us by December 10, 2014 in order for us to be prepared for the program. Our program starts December 21, 2014 through December 23, 2014.
2014 is the exciting eighteenth year of Christmas Gift Program, formally known as the Red Hat Program. During the previous seventeen years we have aided over 15,000 children and adults. Through the years our commitment to the community has never wavered. This achievement has been made possible because of those who have generously participated in our program by either giving or receiving. The Christmas Gift Program provides a “shopping experience” for community members who need assistance, and rely on our support. We also tell people about the meaning of Christmas – and the special gift of God’s Son. It’s a blessing to those who give as well as for those who receive. The program would not be possible without the generous support of our members and community organizations.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Your donations enable us to provide gifts, and toys so that we can work together to provide some of the families in our communities with a “shopping experience” that can fulfill some of their needs.
"By donating today, you too can become a wonderful part of this program."
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS!
This unique program allows families to select items that best suit their families’ needs. This gives the family an opportunity to actively participate in the holiday experience. Once again this year children are able to select a gift for that special adult in their lives. We strive to ensure each child receives the following gifts according to age and gender:
- A book, to promote reading
- A toy, to play with by themselves
- A game, to play with others
- Art supplies, to promote creativity
- Sports item to promote exercise for all ages
- A stuffed animal to give love and to be loved
- A toothbrush and toothpaste, to start the New Year with a sparkling smile!
- Clothes for all ages
- All donations must be new and unwrapped.

Gift Certificates from your local grocery store will provide a holiday meal. Gift certificates from other types of stores will fill broader needs; Gift certificates from Gene’s Fine Foods, Safeway, Lucky’s Target, Sears, Wal-Mart, JC Penny, Summerwinds Nursery to name a few.
