For more than 20 years, the Center has provided holiday gifts for children up to 18 years of age through the Dear Santa program. Children in need served by the Center and their siblings receive donated gifts. Last year, the Center provided gifts and holiday parties to nearly 2,200 East Tennessee children and families in need. This was made possible by individuals and organizations in the community who participate as a sponsor in the Dear Santa program. For additional questions, or if you or your group is interested in organizing a toy drive for Dear Santa, please contact Amy Cattran at email@example.com. Thank you for helping to provide children with the most need and the least resources the opportunity to experience a happy, unforgettable holiday season!
