What is Secret Santa Project ?


Secret Santa Project is a program that helps families with Christmas gifts, dinner, etc. We concentrate on helping working poor, grandparents raising grandkids, and teenagers. We will only be taking a limited amount of families this year, and we do check with area agencies, and your kids school if they are getting help for Christmas already. You can apply for just your teens if you can get angel tree for younger kids. We help families who can't get help other places. You will have to volunteer and complete 2 hours of service before 11/25/2019 to be approved for help.



You must live in Tennessee. You must be a resident of the counties we serve which are:

  • Sullivan

  • Washington

  • Carter

  • Unicoi

  • Hawkins

You will need to bring:

  • Photo ID

  • Social security cards for entire family

  • DHS Letter, or proof of income

  • Children's sizes and wishes

  • Be prepared to write a letter to Santa explaining why you need help this year. This has to be included for your application to be complete.

  • Custody Papers if you don’t have full custody.

  • Paperwork showing you have custody if you aren’t parents or a foster parent.

If you are approved, your children and teens must attend the party for you to get the gifts. Party date and information will be in your acceptance letter.
