The Charles Reid Christmas Party is an annual event that was originated in 1947 by the late Mr. Charles Reid to offer Christmas Toys to underprivileged kids in the Richmond Community.  We are proud to announce this year’s event will be our 65th consecutive year.


This event has passed though generations of families inRichmondand surrounding communities.  We provided Christmas Toys and a visit with Santa for families whom are truly needy during the holiday season.


During the past 65 years, this event has been a cornerstone to the families ofRichmondand surrounding communities. Since the inception of the event, we have served approximately 1000 – 2000 children each year with toys, fruits, candies, cookies, stockings and entertainment.  We are hoping to assist all those in need during this Christmas season.
