Where to Give This Christmas

Christmas Family Sponsorship Program

Every year at Christmas, Foothills County staff, Council and volunteers hold a silent auction at the Foothills County Christmas Party to raise money for those local families that could use a hand up at Christmas. Over the past few years the need has become greater and the staff has responded by increasing the reaches of the program. This year is no exception and our efforts to provide a similar program will continue.

Many businesses support this goodwill program through donations to the Annual Silent Auction. Donated items (or gift cards) will once again be accepted until December 6, 2019.

If you would like more information on how to help, please call Amanda Midgley at 403-603-6229 or email Amanda.
