Since 1999, St. Francois County Community Partnership has coordinated a countywide effort to provide children of St. Francois County with a joyous holiday. All children served are properly screened and referred by one of the five St. Francois County School Districts, East Missouri Action Agency, Children's Division, and Head Start of St. Francois County. During the 2013 season, 1,418 children from 540 local families were served. This is such an exciting and fulfilling community-wide effort serving children who live in no-to-low income families. It is accomplished through the coordinated efforts of the entire community.
The Partnership has earned the trust of the general public in that families receiving assistance have been identified as having a genuine need. Donated items are packed and bagged for parent pick-up or delivered when necessary. Items are left unwrapped giving parents the privilege of presenting the times to their children as they see fit. Children need not know their parents were in need of assistance. Sponsors/donors benefit in knowing they are contributing something meaningful to families in our very own communities.
No donation is too small and all donations are tax deductible. This program is made possible only through the generosity of this community.
