Petaluma Christmas Cheer was the last remaining activity run by the Petaluma Coordinating Council, which was an all-volunteer organization dedicated to providing toys and food for needy families in the greater Petaluma area at Christmas time since its founding in 1957. Since 2010 the program has served over 7,000 families and 1,000 seniors.

Petaluma People Services Center has taken over now and will make sure that Christmas Cheer keeps helping those in the community that may not have means to. This event has raised thousands of dollars to help hundreds of families in the past. PPSC is hoping to continue this trend and even surpass what has been achieved before

Donations will go to gift cards that will be provided for families and older adults in Petaluma that may need a little extra holiday cheer, especially after the hardships that we all have gone through these last couple years.

Please join us in trying to spread Christmas Cheer and smiles to those in our community that need a little extra help!
