Wellroot Family Christmas

Every holiday season, thanks to the generous support of our donors, partners, and volunteers, families enrolled in our programs enjoy various holiday celebrations across the counties we serve.

Celebrations include games, a visit from Santa, and the opportunity for parents and caregivers to personally select clothes and coats for their children in addition to a gift from their wish list. The gifts are then wrapped and quietly stowed away, ready for Christmas morning. We hope you join us!
