The Jefferson County community came together to adopt children or donate to the Jefferson County Sieda Children’s Christmas. As a result, they made this a more cheerful Christmas for a child in a low-income family. 165 households with children under 18 in Jefferson County lived under 100% poverty line during 2018 . Nearly double that for families below the 175% level. Sieda LIHEAP (Heating Assistance) and Christmas programs help families at the 175% poverty level with financial struggles at this time of year.
There is not enough room on this page to list all the generous supporters and donors. Due to the kindness of the community, 375 children received gifts. Furthermore, helping provide toys, clothing, coats, and other items to assist 159 families during a financially stressful time of year.
The distribution was at the First Lutheran Church in Fairfield. We thank them for opening your doors to Sieda and helping.
The families that picked up the donated gifts from caring businesses, groups, and individuals were appreciated. And that much more by the children receiving them. With money donations, we were able to provide for the other children. Thank you, Jefferson County community.
