Christmas Outreach of Isabella County
Christmas Outreach is a diverse mixture of individuals and groups (service clubs, churches, student groups, businesses) who join together each fall/winter to help the needy in our county have a better Christmas.
Around 1980 Christmas Outreach came into being as a formally organized entity (ie- with meetings, minutes, officers, etc...). The group started after several individuals saw duplication of efforts in the community and decided to pool resources to better serve those in need. With monthly meetings September to January, the department leaders plan for the coming December event.
Departments include - coats, hats/mittens, books, boots, bedding/linens, jeans, Christmas items, bikes, food, Christmas trees, and Christmas stockings; other committee members include: registration, office clerical help, officers.
An annual budget is proposed each year. Departments are then able to shop for their needs. Some purchases are made after Christmas to take advantage of sales for the next year.
In the past, Christmas Outreach used several small churches on CMU's campus, but in recent years CMU's Finch Fieldhouse has been available for distribution which usually takes play over 2 days in mid-December.
Anyone who says they are in need of eligible to receive help. All that is needed is for the individual/family to register during the mid to late November sign-up period.
