Richmond Christmas Fund

Making Santa Proud

The Christmas season is a special time of year - a time to celebrate with loved ones and create memories that will last forever. Unfortunately, not everyone can share in the holiday spirit. Many Richmond residents don't have the financial means to prepare a festive meal, let alone purchase gifts. At RCRG, we don't want anyone to miss out on the holiday season. That's why we run the Richmond Christmas Fund.

Each year, the Christmas Fund distributes grocery vouchers to individuals and families in need. Children 12 and under also receive toys, books, and sports equipment, while teenagers are given gift cards. 

The program is supported by nearly 200 volunteers, who contribute well over 3,000 hours annually. Hundreds of other Richmond residents, businesses, and community groups donate cash and toys. We've put the word out to Santa: if he's ever recruiting new elves, Richmond is full of amazing candidates.

We've always believed that a community comes together best when it's needed the most. In the Richmond Christmas Fund, we have proof.
