About the Event
THE CHARITY: Christmas is for Children, CIFC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing all children the love, care, and joy that comprise the spirit of Christmas. CIFC seeks organizations and individuals to contribute gifts and funds, benefiting +1,500 children each year through its Angel Tree program. In addition, each holiday season CIFC organizes a food basket program that assists economically-challenged families and homeless individuals.
HOW WE HELP: ALTRUSA DFW participates in the food basket program with our Red Bag Food Drive. We also contribute to CIFC's effort with our Operation Cookie Elves project! In keeping with CIFC's goal of bringing joy during the holidays, ALTRUSA DFW enlists club members and other community service organizations to bake and bag fresh cookies to be included in every food basket and "Grab-N-Go" bag. In addition, we bake and serve fresh cookies to hundreds of volunteers participating in the food-basket filling. Over the course of three days each December we bake 12,000-14,000 cookies!
