FAQs

Who Needs Help?
For example, say a family of four earning $10.00 hour. 
That’s $1,600 month before taxes
Monthly rent $800
Food $400
Heat $50
Electric $50
Telephone $50
Car insurance, gas $250

There is nothing left for health insurance, clothing, coffee and newspaper, and nothing for Christmas. (As you can see, these amounts were kept on the low side of the scale).  There is no affordable housing. Gas, oil, milk and bread prices are sky high.

This is an example of a family working, trying to make it.

Who volunteers for Community Christmas?

Marshfield residents and people who work in Marshfield. We even have former residents who now live elsewhere come to help every year. They say that it wouldn’t be Christmas without volunteering for Marshfield’s Community Christmas!

The local scout troops learn about the joy of giving when they help out at Community Christmas. Youth Groups from the area’s local churches run fund raisers such as Breakfast with Santa. For many, this is the first of many community services; a wonderful way to live their faith.

Other local organizations donate to Community Christmas, as well as fund raisers like the local Golf Tournament run by Tom Welsh that benefits Marshfield Community Christmas
