Family Life Center of Greene County, Indiana


Developing relationships that impact a community through supporting families.

 

Community Christmas


FLC develops a Master List of families that disseminates their information for various organizations and churches: Civitan's toys and clothing distribution, Angel Trees, school drives, church distributions, police departments.

Families not being served by other organizations will receive gifts through "Community Christmas"

The screening process allows FLC to communicate with all families for the purpose of matching them with appropiate serving organizations and churches plus individuals who want to "adopt" a family.

Families being served by FLC will be matched with volunteers who assist in "shopping" for gifts for their children and a new coat for each child. These gifts are wrapped, then food is selected from "Garden Gate" Food pantry and a cooked holiday meal is served to the family.

This type of commitment enables the volunteer the time to make a relationship with the family. Thus creating a friendship for life.

Family Life Center becomes a winter wonderland for the community and the family.

The third element of "Community Christmas" is the Christmas / Winter decoration give away. FLC receives decorations year round.  On the Monday after Thanksgiving these decorations are distributed for families.  Decorations include completely assembled trees, wreaths, working lights, santas, angels, villages, etc...
