El Dorado Spring’s Christmas Basket Project is successful each year because of the generous donation of money, gifts, and time by members of our community.

Cash/check donations may be mailed to Christmas Basket treasurer, Steve Wiseman, 884 S 275 Rd, El Dorado Springs, 64744.  All donations are tax deductible.  Money donations are used to purchase food as well as any gifts needed to supplement the community’s donations.

Remember that because of covid concerns, food donations are not being collected.  Instead of buying groceries, please make a monetary donation.

Nov. 2 to Dec. 7 toys for children ages 3 months to 11 years  and gifts for students age 12 to 16 such as scarves, hats, gloves, games, coloring books and pens/colored pencils may be dropped off at Fugate Motors for their Toys for Tots Drive.  Please limit gift value to $10 to $20.

Tuesday, Dec. 15 gift wrappers will be needed beginning at 9 am at the First Baptist Church.  You will be asked to wear a mask and socially distance from others not in your group.  Please bring scissors!  Recruit a friend and join the Christmas fun.  If you have extra gift paper or gift boxes, feel free to bring those too.  For those who always help, note that this is a change in the day of the week.
