Each year, the Spotsylvania Department of Social Services (DSS) provides Thanksgiving and/or Christmas assistance to our clients through the Holiday Hope Program. Holiday Hope matches businesses, church and community groups, and individuals with needy families. Qualifying families submit an application (DOC) to DSS and provide a list of the names, ages, and clothing sizes of children in the household.
Sponsors can then provide their match family with food, grocery store gift cards, or gifts for the children. In addition to sponsors, DSS works with other agencies such as SECA, SERVE, Salvation Army, and the Red Cross to provide needy families with holiday assistance. The Holiday Hope Program allows disadvantaged members of our community to have a better holiday season.
If you would like more information about the Holiday Hope Program, please email Jackie Brett, Volunteer Services Coordinator, or call at 540-507-7845.
