12th Annual Teen Christmas
To provide new clothing for impoverished teenagers at Christmas.
Mobilize giving individuals to provide funding for the purchase of new clothing at Christmas. Qualified teenage individuals are given a shopping opportunity and allowed to make the selections for themselves at Sears store Westgate Mall.
TEEN CHRISTMAS was founded in 2005. It became obvious to Clint Walker while volunteering with The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program that there were a number of teenage individuals that did not qualify for the Christmas gift programs which focus on children ages 0 – 13. In sharing these concerns with others, his friend Paul Rose spoke about another community he knew of that started a Christmas giving program for teenagers 13-18 for the very same reason.
The first outreach for TEEN CHRISTMAS was a huge success. Over the months following the Holidays an amazing group of giving individuals came together and volunteered their time and talents, formalized the program, and began to raise funds.
TEEN CHRISTMAS is an All-Volunteer Organization (AVO). All services are provided by volunteers and not by any paid staff.
