Free holiday and Christmas help in Richmond and Columbia County.

Assistance is available at both Christmas as well as Thanksgiving in Richmond and Columbia County as well as Augusta GA. There are free Christmas toys for kids, food baskets (including at Thanksgiving), meals, and more from Toys for Tots as well as Angel Tree among other programs. Find free Christmas gifts near you in the Augusta Georgia region.

Hundreds of families in the Columbia as well as Richmond County Georgia region apply for help each year. Based on donations, the Christmas Clearinghouses will pass out holiday food baskets, free toys for children, and even a tree for the home. There may be clothes, Legos, video games, barbie dolls, matchbox care and other free Xmas toys for children. Some low-income families may be given free household stuff or furniture, such as a free mattress for their bed.

The charities will only help people in the town or city near them. Households can't apply to a location that is not in their county. If there are no additional Christmas toys left to pass out to the low-income, or if the agency has a long waiting list in place, volunteers will refer the applicant to another local holiday assistance program, including charities or churches that pass out free holiday gift card. The goal is to help as many Richmond County area families as possible.
