Christmas Baskets

Our Christmas Basket program was back in full strength for the 2022 Christmas season after a reduced program last year. Families (225) received at least one box of food and each child a clothing gift and a toy, handmade hats and mittens, and an article of winter clothing. Next year (2023) Donations (including Children’s gifts) must be turned in by December 3rd, 2023

For signup or questions please call 315-865-5558 on or before November 11th, 2023. If you have not received a callback, please call 315-865-5558 again or 315-865-5854 and leave a message and a GOOD Number to be called back at.

Basket distribution will take place again at the Twin Churches (Foothills) in Holland Patent on 

December 9th, 2023 at the scheduled time assigned at the time of intake.

As a reminder, we have an ongoing bottle and can drive at Pops (Old Cushman’s) on 365. Pull up and tell the person they are for Foothills and they tell you where to leave them.

Foothills will be a proud recipient of Stuff the Bus in 2023!

When you donate to Stuff the Bus, you will be helping Foothills Christmas Basket Program and many other local programs as well! 

Did you know?

The Christmas Basket Committee has an account at

 Pop's (old Cushman's) Bottle and Can Redemption Center on Rte. 365 in Floyd. 

When you bring in cans and bottles you can tell them to apply the redemption to the 

Foothills Christmas Basket account. 

The money earned will help to buy food for the baskets. 

Thank you.

 This account will be active throughout the year
