Our organization, the Barnwell County Rotary Club, sponsors the Secret Santa program each year as one of our service projects. We are proud that this is our 21st year sponsoring the program and we could not have done it without the help of the community.
This program, if you are not aware, serves many needy families in the county that are unable to give their children gifts for Christmas. 2020 has been especially difficult for many in our local community. Your assistance with this program is appreciated.
The Department of Social Services screens each applicant and provides our club a Christmas wish list for those children, ages 2 to 10, which are eligible for this service. We are not asking you or your business to donate money, we are simply trying to get sponsors for these children.
Sponsoring a child means purchasing toys for these needy children and spending approximately $50 per child. If you are able to spend more than $50 per child, we ask that you please sponsor more than one child. We will provide you with a “wish list” for the child and the sponsor can come as close to their “wish” as they are able. No clothes or expensive electronics, please.
This could be a great service project and morale builder for your family or business. What could be better than helping a needy child enjoy Christmas?
We hope that you will consider helping these children. Please call us at the numbers below should you have any questions.
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
