Holiday Program

Program Purpose

The Orange County Department of Social Services has been helping families with holiday assistance for more than 20 years. The program has grown every year as need has increased.


Last year, through the combined efforts of churches, schools, individuals, businesses and community groups, the holiday program assisted over 3,000 children. This year, the agency anticipates that number to increase to almost 5,000 children. All of these children live in Orange County.

Bringing Happiness

The holiday program brings happiness to donors, sponsors, volunteers and especially to families in need. It provides an opportunity for families in need to experience the joys of the holiday season and to put aside for a while their day to day struggles.

The Orange County Department of Social Services invites you to be part of the Annual Holiday Program and together we can make the holiday season a happier time for the many Orange County residents in need.
