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.
