REINdear (Reaching Everyone in Need) has been around since 2003. Our mission is to
coordinate community efforts to support children who would normally do without during
the Christmas season.
Several community agencies, including all three local school systems, the Department of
Children’s Services, the Youth Service Bureau, the Family Crisis Shelter, and several
volunteers, were frustrated with the fact that families were put on multiple lists for
assistance with Christmas gifts. This group worked together to stream line the list of
families in need and the process of gift giving. We facilitate the collection and
disbursement of Christmas presents between the donors and the families. With the
generous support of our community, we are able to help approximately 1,200 children in
Montgomery County each year.
How do we do this?
Each year schools and other community organizations assist us by getting request for
help forms out to families. REINdear then keeps a database of names and information
about the children and families who need help this Christmas season. This database
includes the children’s age, size, favorite color, interests, as well as a list of needs and
It is our hope that any individual, church, business, or organization wishing to assist a
family (or families) in need will allow us to lend a hand by providing the names and
information of the children that need assistance.
