In 2016, Sieda Christmas programs and partner organizations distributed holiday gifts and food to 968 families throughout five counties in our Southeast Iowa service region. 

The programs in our counties provided gifts for families and individuals qualifying for assistance. In total, we were able to help put a Christmas present under the tree for 2,352 children this year. 

Additionally, Sieda helped give 157 elderly households in Wapello County a meal this holiday season through our Silver Bells Christmas distribution program. 

Thank you to all our partner organization who helped gather and distribute gifts. Thank you so much to all who donated their time and gifts to help share the spirit of warmth for the holidays.
