Holiday Basket Programs

Sign-up for Thanksgiving assistance is the first week in September and sign-up for Christmas assistance is the first week in October. Due to the high demand we are unable to accept late applications.

If you would like to sponsor a family for 2017, call 397-6060 between 9am-2pm or Email.

Last year, with the assistance of the local community, Oasis was able to provide holiday food to over 650 families. Your generosity makes it all possible!
