Serving the Douglas County area, including Reedsport, Glendale and Drain, Oregon, the C4KDC.org helps ensure that children will have a Christmas gift they my not have otherwise received. According to its website, its mission aligns well with Optimist International's purpose of serving youth and community:
Christmas for Kids of Douglas County is a non-profit organization that paired with the help of generous and caring people will reach every underprivileged child, bringing Christmas spirit to their home and those they love. We, at Christmas for Kids of Douglas County, through caring, hard work, and determination will make it our personal goal to see that every available resource is utilized to ensure a wonderful holiday season for all.
