Thank You to Josie Arney!

On Monday, May 3rd, Patty Brown & Lori Moorman, Bedford Community Christmas Station Board Co-Presidents met with Josie Arney to recognize her many years of excellent service to BCCS! She began volunteering with BCCS in 2008, joined the board in 2009, and has served as Finance Director since 2011.

The BCCS Board and many volunteers are so very thankful for all that Josie has done for the organization for these past 13 years. From keeping up with purchase invoices, bank statements, tax returns, etc. for 10 years to making sure that everyone was well fed during CSX for many years. Her awesome coconut cake is legendary!

We wish Josie many blessings as she steps off of our Board & passes her vast knowledge on to Linda Zimmerman, who was voted in as Finance Director at April’s Annual Board meeting.




Our Mission

The Bedford Community Christmas Station is an all-volunteer, community-wide, non-profit organization (501-c3) that assists low-income families in the Bedford, Virginia community on a seasonal basis by providing a shopping experience characterized by choice and dignity. Serving families with children is our highest priority.


How We Accomplish Our Mission

It gives us great joy to help families with their needs by providing food, personal items, clothes and toys for children, teen gifts, and adult gifts in our Christmas program, a pair of new shoes for students, Easter baskets and goodies, and many other opportunities for service throughout the year. 

Please take some time to learn about all the programs we offer throughout the year and how you can get involved! Each program has a dedicated page accessed in the menu on the right of this page.


**Shop our Station Fundraising Sale, Saturday, June 5th, 2021!**

You never know what treasure you could find!

Our biggest fundraising opportunity, our Station Fundraising Sales, began on Saturday, March 6th, and will continue the first Saturday of each month until October 2nd. Shoppers can also come in on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 am-4 pm through Wednesday, September 29th, 2021 to shop.

The funds raised from our Station Fundraising Sales continue to help us purchase clothing for children and teens, toys, food, and household and personal care items for our Christmas Selection eXpress (CSX) event each year in December.

We are also open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 10am-4pm, for dropping off donations!


Help for Ghana!

We recently received a large donation of wheelchairs and accessories, walkers, incontinence supplies, and bed pads along with a few other pieces of medical equipment. In an effort to make the greatest impact with this generous donation, board co-president, Lori Moorman, reached out to friends of BCCS and was directed to Dr. Yaw Adu-Gyamfi.

A huge need for medical equipment was identified in Ghana, so last week Dr. Adu-Gyamfi came to the Christmas Station to accept the donation and will be sending everything to Ghana!
