Children’s Aid Society headlines one of the largest Christmas programs in Charles County. Working in partnership with the Charles County Department of Social Services, the program assists 2,000 children with Christmas toys and gifts. For this program, Children’s Aid collects toys though donations and Social Services handles the application and scheduling process. During the months before Christmas, Children’s Aid gives boxes out to local businesses and they collect toys for us at drop off locations. Children’s Aid mans the week-long event and is always in need of volunteers to help set up and even walk clients around as they “shop” for the right gifts for their children. Volunteers for this program must be over the age of 18 years old.
If you are in need of help with Christmas you would need to contact Social Services and fill out an application, Children’s Aid does not handle the application process.
Applications are generally mailed out late August – early September.
