Letters to Santa

The post office may be doing letters, but the American Red Cross Rappahannock Chapter has a twist on their program - and it makes Christmas special for some child that might not have had a Christmas. Now more than ever they need YOUR help.

Letters to Santa, now celebrating its 21st year, is a holiday assistance program sponsored by the Rappahannock Area Chapter. Last year 765 local children received new toys and a winter coat through the program. Children one to twelve years of age, with their parents’ help, submit applications and letters via Social Services and Head Start. Then the letters are placed in binders ready for community members to choose a child to sponsor for the holidays.

We hope you will join the team of great Santas! If you would like to be a sponsor, please visit one of our adoption sites. Can’t come in? Just give us a call at (540) 735-0500.
