Major Accomplishments:Our most significant accomplishment in 2015 was to provide Christmas gifts and food to over 1,616 needy families in the Chesterfield and Colonial Heights communities. That equates to approximately 5,381 individuals that received assistance from this organization during the 2015 Christmas season. We also helped 131 elderly persons celebrate the holidays. Individuals and groups sponsored 517 families through the program, providing gifts, toys, clothes and food for the recipients. $422,360 was the total of Direct Aid and In-Kind benefit received by our clients. This amount represents more than 94% of the donations received during 2015 which went directly to our clients.The Chesterfield–Colonial Heights Christmas Mother, Inc. maintains its nonprofit, charitable 501(c)3 status with the IRS, and is registered with the Department of Consumer Affairs of the Commonwealth of Virginia.The Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Christmas Mother has served the needs of those less fortunate in our area in the same way since 1972. Goals:Our primary goal is to satisfy the mission by screening applicants to ensure that they meet the residency and financial guidelines that are provided by the Department of Social Services. During the last several years our goals have also focused on increasing the awareness of the program and the benefits that it provides to our community. We continually seek to gain recognition in the public eye so that we can increase the number of businesses, churches, civic clubs, families and individuals who make either monetary donations to the program or who sponsor a needy family or elderly person at Christmas. As monetary contributions increase, and as the number of sponsors increase, we are able to provide gifts to more families and the elderly during the holidays. Another goal is to enhance our processes in order to more efficiently handle the increasing number of Hispanic clients that we serve each year.
