One Stop Community Christmas registration begins on Nov. 11

Volunteers are gearing up for the 3rd year for this holiday assistance program. One Stop Community Christmas (OSCC) will assist those in need in Coles, Cumberland, Shelby, Douglas, Moultrie, Edgar and Clark counties.

The goal of OSCC is to put the spotlight on the family during the Christmas season. Last year over 300 volunteers helped serve almost 1600 children. Parents are able to navigate through the various table stops with a personal shopper. They are also given wrapping paper to wrap the gifts.

Last year OSCC offered gift tables for newborn to 18 years of age, books, stocking stuffers, household items, stuffed animals and the supplies for Christmas Dinner. This year the group looks to add several new tables along with realigning some of the tables from last year.

Registration for OSCC will begin November 11 and run through December 5. To sign up you must present your photo ID and medical card or social security card for each child you are signing up. (Must be actual ID and cards, no copies are allowed.)

To sign up, you must live in one of the seven counties One Stop services. You may sign up at any of the following locations:

Nov. 13 - Shelby County Health Department, Shelbyville, 10 am-3 pm

Nov. 21, 22 - Sullivan Library 10 am-3 pm

Dec. 3-4 - The Salvation Army, Mattoon, 10 am - 3 p.m.

Dec. 5 - The Salvation Army, Mattoon, 12 - 7 pm
