Jerry Damson Honda supports Christmas Charities Year Round
As the temperatures continue to rise around Huntsville, Christmas may not be top of mind. But for Christmas Charities Year Round - every day is one closer to Christmas, and Jerry Damson Honda is proud to be a supporter.
Christmas Charities Year Round is non- profit charitable organization serving Madison County, Alabama, that provides basic necessities, plus toys and food at Christmas, at no cost to its clients.
Christmas Charities was founded in 1949 to help local families after a boll weevil infestation devastated the area cotton crop. Our goal is to provide children in low income families with the items needed to improve their lives. These items include clothing, school supplies, toys and food at Christmas, and basic household necessities. By providing needy children and their families with these simple items we hope to improve the quality of their lives and encourage children to stay in school. Education is the key to helping these children break the cycle of poverty into which many of them are born.
Christmas Charities Year Round’s current goals are to provide clothing for qualified individuals, to give children toys at Christmas, furnish needy families with household goods and clothes, to recognize the elderly with a
Christmas gift and meal, and help residents in times of crisis. We have dedicated employees and board members who work tirelessly for the organization’s mission.
