We will need volunteers to help with the evening! If you are interested in learning more or helping to coordinate, contact Nancy at 330.499.4927 or email nancy@dively.net


Organized over 50 years ago, our organization continues to follow its original purpose: To provide assistance to those in need during the holiday season, and help to prevent duplication of those services.

Today our programs include The Giving Tree, Adopt-A-Family, Coats for Christmas, Mitten Trees and Adopt-A-Grandparent. We accept monetary donations as well, which enables us to purchase toys, food and clothing gift certificates for those receiving assistance.


A Community Christmas is a volunteer organization that coordinates the efforts of the community to provide Christmas assistance and eliminate duplication of services for needy individuals and families residing in Stark county. Each year nearly 2,700 Stark County families/individuals need and seek help through our program. Through the generosity of our local citizens and businesses, we are able to assist these families and individuals. ACC is a non-profit organization and all donations are tax exempt. All who apply for assistance receive some form of help through one or more of our programs. We, as an organization, are very fortunate to have loyal volunteers and donors who willingly give of their time, monetary contributions and donations.

Cross Check

Anyone, be it individual or agency, providing holiday assistance and not receiving the client’s name from ACC, is requested to submit their client’s name to us for a cross check. These names will be checked against the case sheets from intake and other lists turned in. The list of clients is confidential and not released for public information.

*Volunteers are not needed for the cross check as it is confidential and handled by the ACC office.
