UCHC Annual Christmas Project

United Community Housing Coalition 
Annual Christmas Project Party
Monday, December 3, 2018 | 5:00 - 8:00 PM

This year marks the 33rd year that UCHC has been involved with the Annual Christmas Project Party, the 12th year we have sponsored the event, and the 40th year that Ted has played Santa! Simply put, we try to help particularly needy or recently homeless clients enjoy the holiday season by giving gifts to children and seniors and by sharing dinner with families. Bring a gift for a child*, a check to help us buy gifts, yourself, and a friend**! Light food, soft-drinks, and coffee will be provided (Cash bar for other beverages).

No grant funds are involved with this project. All expenses are covered by volunteer staff and donors (such as yourself). UCHC is a non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
*We welcome and appreciate new or handmade gifts appropriate for anyone under 18, seniors, and disabled persons. Please no used items.
**A friend will be provided is one is not available.

This is your chance to be Santa Claus, Kris Kringle, Ol' St. Nick, or the transformed Mr. Scrooge for a needy family. Don't miss this opportunity!

If you cannot attend the event, but would like to contribute, please consider bringing your gifts to our office before December 19th or making a donation in person or online.
