Thursday, December 3, 2015 | 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Temple Bar | 2906 Cass Ave, Detroit
This is your chance to be Santa Claus, Kris Kringle, St. Nick, or the transformed Mr. Scrooge for a needy family! PLEASE JOIN US FOR THIS SPECIAL EVENING AND HELP US GIVE A KID A NICE CHRISTMAS.
Please bring any new or handmade gift appropriate for anyone form a newborn to 18 years-old, as well as any item appropriate for a senior or disabled person. We prefer to have no "used" items.
This is the ninth year that UCHC has sponsored this event, the 30th year that UCHC has been involved (and the 42nd year Ted has had the pleasure to coordinate it - that is scary). Simply put, we try to assist particularly needy, generally recently homeless clients, enjoy the holiday season by giving gifts for the children seniors, and others, and a dinner for the family. No grant funds are involved in the 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. Light food, soft drinks, and coffee will be provided. There will be a cash bar for other beverages. See you there!
