Every year, CSS runs a program that services approximately 1100 low income families with clothing and toys for Christmas. Beginning on early October, we take applications, and run the Giving Tree program for the Diocese of Fall River, collect clothing and toys, and then with an army of volunteers, organize, wrap, and assemble gift baskets. Baskets are then distributed to our Fall River, New Bedford, and Hyannis Office for clients to pick up. Click here for locations.

It is quite the undertaking, and would be impossible without the 100’s of volunteers. If you would like to volunteer for this programs, please see our volunteer page.

Due to the overwhelming response to applications from our clients, we are unable to accommodate any more applications at this time. We will address emergency referrals from parishes and other agencies.

In addition, please see our application guidelines.
