Smiles Make the Greatest Gifts

Providing smiles at Christmas is another way we serve.

300 local families are served through the Love Baskets Ministry

Love Baskets has been serving the New Richmond community for over 25 years. The New Richmond schools had Love Baskets and Somerset had Secret Santa for years before they came together about 10 years ago. The committee is now comprised of representatives from The Salvation Army, several area churches, and interested individuals. The Love Baskets program offers presents to families who on their own would not be able to afford them. In 2017 over 300 families were served because of the generosity of individuals and businesses who sponsor this program. 

How Can I help brighten the holidays?

If you are a business, church, family or individual who is interested in sponsoring a family or many families this Christmas.  Please fill out the online interest form and someone will be getting a hold of you soon.  Thank you for wanting to Brighten the Holidays for a child.
