CROOK COUNTY HOLIDAY PARTNERSHIP
For over 30 years, during the Christmas season, the Crook County Holiday Partnership has provided clothing, gifts, and food to children, families, seniors, and veterans in our community who are less fortunate.
The program is well supported and appreciated in our community. It was successfully coordinated for years by Crook County departments. In October 2020, the Crook County Foundation was asked to continue this timeless tradition, which we agreed to do with enthusiasm.
The infograph to the left showcases the value of this program, with 1,484 individuals receiving food boxes, clothing, and gifts in 2020. A similar number of individuals were served in 2021.
None of this would have been possible without the incredible support of our community! Facebook was our largest contributor in 2020, providing over $30,000 to launch that year's food purchases. Dozens of businesses, organizations, and individuals continue to donate cash, volunteer time, food items, and gifts from our Tree of Joy tags.
Our committee is always working to build new relationships to expand the Holiday Partnership program and increase the value of the program. We welcome new volunteers to our core planning team or any of our subcommittees.
