TIS THE SEASON! The Christmas Grant program for youth organizations was such a huge success over the past 7 years we’re planning to do it again this year. The deadline for submissions is Nov 14, 2023!
Since 2012, the GOBF has had the opportunity to provide Christmas assistance to hundreds of families in our community. We believe this program has been very successful over the years. Seven years ago, we felt the need to add one very important component to our Christmas assistance program. We wanted to involve as many kids as possible with our Christmas assistance program. To achieve this goal, we decided to partner with 25 youth organizations including travel ball teams, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Youth Groups, and 4H Clubs, to name a few. Each one of these organizations received a $500 grant to sponsor a family for Christmas. These organizations selected a family and worked as a team to complete the shopping, wrapping, and delivery.
So again, this year we are going to give 25 local youth-based organizations a $500 grant to sponsor a family of their choosing. From church youth groups to travel ball teams, Girl Scout troops to your local FFA chapter, we want the youth of our community to enjoy this contagious feeling of helping others.
If interested, please complete the online request form. Again, the deadline for submissions is November 14, 2023. Together, we can make this Christmas a special day for many children across our area.
