Montana free Christmas and holiday assistance.

Many of the charities in Montana operate special seasonal programs, including at Christmas, Thanksgiving, and other times of the year. Everything from free toys to games, presents, food baskets, and holiday meals may be served.

The organizations that offer help during the holidays also offer other assistance programs during the year. So the Montana agencies operate year round, however the resources listed below do focus on providing additional support at Christmas. Anyone applying for a free toy for their child will be able to request a certain gift, depending on availability. When it comes to the availability of a Thanksgiving or Christmas meal, those programs really depend on volunteers to cook and serve them.

Each year thousands of struggling as well as working poor families in Montana get help at the holidays. Their children can be given a free Christmas toy or winter attire, or someone living on a fixed income (such as senior citizen or the disabled) are also key participants. The goal is to help the low income, lonely, and less fortunate experience joy.
