The Christmas Outreach began over 30 years ago as a ministry of Southeast Christian Church by providing Christmas to families in need. From this amazing ministry, Southeast Community Outreach (SECOR) was born. SECOR, a non-profit organization located in the Solomon Center, offers programs and services that help people throughout the year.
This year, Southeast will once again partner with SECOR to provide Christmas to over 1,000 children and 500 families. You don't want to miss out on this amazing experience!
NOV 24 - DEC 9
Christmas trees are set up in the lobby at Southeast with tags representing each child that will receive a gift for Christmas. We encourage everyone to select a tag off the trees and purchase a gift for a child. The tags include information about the child's age, gender and gifts they have personally requested. Once you have purchased a gift, place the gift in a shopping bag with the tag tucked safely inside! Return the gift to Southeast and place it under the Christmas tree by December 9.
We are in need of volunteers to help with gift sorting, gift wrapping, and more.
Volunteer days/times are below. There are always different volunteer opportunities available during the week or just come see the process in action on the days/times listed below.
