Holiday Support for the Community

It is the mission of the Gingerbread House to ensure that, “Every child in Washington County will have the opportunity to experience the lasting, cherished memories of Christmas”.  We achieve this mission by reaching out to individuals and families in Washington County who do not have adequate resources to meet their basic needs, or celebrate the holiday season.

Sponsoring groups, families and organizations take pride in filling their "adopted" family's basic needs, as well as providing special treats and gifts for individual family members.  This seasonal program has been warmly embraced by the entire community and is quickly becoming a local holiday tradition.
