Give Where You Live…Transform Lives with Christmas in July


For the past 19 years, Christmas in July has been held to help remind us that need doesn’t just happen at the holidays, but year-round.  ACO helps transform lives by providing essential human and social services in our communities, and your donations to “Christmas in July” provides funding that allows ACO to meet the mission. 


  • $25 feeds a child breakfast and lunch for two weeks
  • $50 gives seniors 10 days of hot meals through Meals-On-Wheels
  • $100 provides healthy groceries and fresh produce for a family of 6 for one week
  • $250 assists a family with their utility bills for one month
  • $500 keeps a family safe in their home for one month
  • $1,000 is the “Five Star Santa” Level of giving.  Your commitment of an annual payment of $1,000 each year for five years will impact many families by transforming their lives. (Payments can be set up for auto draft for just $84 per month!)
