Holiday Baskets

Attention Community Members:

While the holiday season is meant to be a joyful time, for many it can also be a time of great financial worry.

I am reaching out to you today in an effort to provide families with relief.

Registration is now open for Integrated Family Community Services

2019 Holiday Program.

Sponsored families receive the makings for a traditional Thanksgiving meal, winter holiday meal, and individualized gifts for a celebration.

I ask that you share our information about our program with families in need.

Last year IFCS created hunger-free holidays for over 880 individuals.


Your assistance is crucial if we are to reach every child who is experiencing food insecurity this holiday season. It is social workers, school counselors, and committed advocates in the community, like yourself, who have spread the word in previous years and successfully connected new families to our program.

Find program specifics on our website: www.ifcs.org.
