Christmas Giving Program

Boys’ and Girls’ Brigade Christmas Giving Program

Holidays can be a stressful time for families. With the help of the Spring Road staff and school community, we can offer assistance to families through the Boys’ and Girls’ Brigade Christmas Giving program. The program is designed for families who live within the Cities or Townships of Neenah or Menasha. Children must be between the ages of birth thru 18 years of age.


There is a cap of 475 enrolled families. If you are in need of this service, sign up now. Families can enroll in the program for two consecutive years. After two years they must use other programs/resources for one year.


Referral cards for the Boys’ and Girls’ Brigade Christmas Giving program can be obtained by contacting the school office. All referrals are confidential.
