* COVID-19 * has changed the way Christmas Sharing will work in 2020. Though our Collections will be mainly virtual and our Distributions will be drive through, our focus remains – to make Christmas MORE JOYFUL for our neighbors in need! The following describes our historical program.
2020 Christmas Sharing
An Annual Christmas Miracle since 1969
Christmas Sharing is an all-volunteer charitable organization run by a coalition of Wheaton and Warrenville, Illinois churches that provides assistance to families in need during the Christmas season. Families are assisted without regard to their religious affiliation and our goal is to make their holidays a little brighter. The area we serve lies within the geographic boundary of Wheaton Warrenville Community Unit School District 200.
Christmas Sharing volunteers typically* collect food, gently used clothing, toys and cash from District 200 schools, local churches, scouting groups, libraries, civic groups, small businesses, corporations and individuals. In early December of each year, items are sorted and distributed from eight church locations, to families in need as identified by school social workers.
*This year’s Collections will be mainly virtual and Distributions will be drive through. Please donate online!
Our mission is one of simple compassion—to make Christmas a little more joyful for our neighbors in need.
