Christmas Food Boxes

Serving Columbia.
Celebrating Christmas.

December 22, 2024

For more than 30 years, the Columbia Lions Club and, before them the Jaycees, have delivered Christmas food boxes to families in need in Columbia, Marietta, Wrightsville and surrounding areas. The project is co-sponsored by the Sunsnappers.

The boxes include a turkey, mashed potatoes, butter, milk, eggs, cereal, fruit and vegetables. The project is supported by donations from local businesses and individuals.

Registration opens in late October.

In the spirit of giving this holiday season, please consider donating to our cause by using the link below.
