PresentDPPCA Christmas Miracle

The DPPCA Christmas Miracle Food Hamper Project is organized and coordinated by community volunteers who endeavor to help make Christmas time a little brighter for some of the less fortunate families in our community.  Each year the committee provides 50 families with food hampers containing 3 days worth of meals including Christmas dinner plus new hats and mitts for the children. The cost for food to fill a hamper that feeds a 2 adult equivalent family is approximately $175.00. The generous support of financial and non-perishable food donations helps keep the costs down for the project.  This 2016 years donations will soon be posted.
