Holiday Giving Network

NECM screens over 400 families in the holiday season for Christmas food baskets, for our clients to receive a basket or gift card. Additionally, families can register their children online for toys and/or gifts provided through Toys for Tots or Salvation Army Angel Tree.

Holiday Baskets are a wonderful way to provide a holiday meal for those in need, that would not otherwise have a nice Christmas meal.

How do I adopt a family? Call NECM at 454-1097 or e-mail us and ask for a provider sheet.  Instructions and family information will follow.
