The Lord’s Cupboard of Jefferson County Christmas Box team recently distributed over 400 food orders, with each order consisting of at least 2 heavy boxes and sometimes 3, depending on family size. Christmas Box Coordinator Vicki Carr devised a very efficient system of contactless curbside pick-up from our facility at the corner of 4th Street and Grimes. Very few volunteers, always masked, and no clients entered the building.
For those asking if they are still able to get a Christmas Box this year, this project is complete for 2020. For future reference, registration for Christmas Boxes takes place in October and the first half of November every year. Next year at that time, keep your eye out as they are frequently posting registration instructions on their Facebook page, put out press releases, send out letters to those on SNAP and give reminders with food orders.
