About Us

      Since 1945, the Holiday Bureau, a 501-c non-profit organization, has provided toys, books, games, homegoods, food, clothes  etc. to low income families of Anderson County.  All of these items are recieved through donations from the community, and are then prepared and recycled for give-out by non-paid volunteers.  Volunteers work year-round in order to create the best possible holiday experience for families in need. Although the agency’s efforts are concentrated during the holiday season, assistance is given year round for those who are income eligible.

      All of the volunteers who keep this organization functioning, extend a heart-felt thank you to all of those who make this project so successful. There is always an open invitation for others in the community to get involved. 

No person is ever paid.  No items are ever sold.  We are a purely volunteer organization.
