One Stop Community Christmas

Bringing gifts to the needy

Derby Roan, Copy Editor

One Stop Community Christmas is an organization with a goal of bringing gifts to those in need in Clark, Coles, Cumberland, Douglas, Edgar, Moultrie and Shelby Counties. The Coles County branch of this organization has been hosted in Lake Land College’s West Building since 2013.
Last year, One Stop helped provide presents for almost 850 families.
In addition to bringing gifts to those who may not otherwise receive them, the volunteerism associated with One Stop can bring the community together. It’s a great opportunity to work with different people with the common goal of helping others.
Students can get involved by shopping with families or helping to host the event. Or, if helping out in-person doesn’t work, students can collect supplies or gifts for families, or donate online.
Every penny helps to bring families the happy Christmas that we all long for. Check out One Stop Community Christmas’s website for more information on this service or to contribute.
