The Marshall County Christmas Coalition was formed in 1996 to assess and coordinate Christmas assistance programs in Marshall County and to foster cooperation among agencies, governmental entities, schools, businesses, churches and other community supporters toward the accomplishment of these efforts.
We ask sponsors to spend at least $200 on children ages 0-12 and at least $250 on ages 13-18 as long as the child is enrolled in school. Of course, you are welcome to spend more if you wish, just make sure that the amount spent per sibling is comparable. If you aren’t comfortable spending this much, please feel free to make a cash donation in any amount that you choose.
If the child is asking for something that you feel is too expensive, feel free to purchase items that are age and sex appropriate. We do not expect our sponsors to purchase every item requested and go beyond your own budget.
Cash donations are always acceptable and appreciated. Volunteers will shop for the children that aren’t sponsored with the money donated. Donations may be mailed to
