“The 33rd Annual Christmas Party for Clay County’s underprivileged children will be held on Saturday, December 19th, 2015. It will be held at the Clay County Fairgrounds, 2497 State Road 16 West, Green Cove Springs from 8:00 A.M. until 12 noon.
The Christmas Party is open to any Clay County resident. Santa is on hand for any child who would like to visit him. Each child from newborn thru fourteen years old receives a bag of three new toys based on age and gender. The child may then select one used toy, and free clothing is available for the entire family, thanks to a partnership with the Orange Park Clothes Closet. Bikes are given away on a first come, first serve basis. Hot dogs, popcorn and cokes are provided. Entertainers perform Christmas carols for the enjoyment of both the volunteers and the participants. Although the line can be long, it generally moves quickly and the Party will not end until everyone in line receives gifts. The outside gates will close promptly at 12 noon.
Children must be present to receive gifts. Unfortunately, there are no exceptions to this rule. It would be awful for a child who has waited in line to not receive gifts because a child who was not there received a bag of gifts instead.
We wish you and your family a very happy holiday season and are grateful to have this opportunity to help the children in our community.
