Welcome to the

Hood River County Christmas Project


Seasons Greetings!

The Hood River County Christmas Project provides assistance to low income families in Hood River County during the holiday season, offering food as well as children's gifts for a measure of comfort and joy.

Every year local volunteers and area sponsors work together to ensure the success of a program that brings smiles to the faces of all those involved.

Sign up to Volunteer


Hood River County Christmas Project is always looking for more volunteers. We readily welcome individuals to assist with all facets of this program. This includes registering families, packing food and gifts, and participating in distribution both at the pickup facility and possibly beyond to a few families unable to travel.

Should you be interested in spreading a little holiday cheer to families in need, please...

Sign Up Here.
