Community Holiday Assistance Program of Eastern Pender County NC

Helping make the holidays brighter for thirty years

What if... you could help someone who is struggling by not only meeting some material needs, but also to give them Jesus? This Christmas, we aim to do that for about 522 adults and 487 children! 

The Community Holiday Assistance Program (CHAP) of Eastern Pender County, North Carolina originated 30 years ago. CHAP-participating churches and charitable organizations join together to make the holidays brighter for people in need. Thank you, Walmart, Food Lion, and Lowes Foods for giving.

Eastern Pender County schools; outreach, civic, and military organizations; businesses, and churches come together by way of the Community Holiday Assistance Program to provide food and toys to make the holidays brighter for people in need.


Applicants (were due Dec. 8, 2017) share a list of wishes and needs, which we then try to fill. These items will stock the shelves our CHAP  “holiday shop.”

CHAP invited outreach recipients to “shop,” come hear Christmas music, enjoy refreshments, and do a kids’ craft. And we hope they will encounter Jesus while they’re here. 

To receive holiday assistance next year, families and individuals should apply in fall at their school guidance office, Share The Table, 4 Cs, Master’s Table, or Topsail Senior Center.

Thank you, participating organizations (listed on the right) for giving to our community.
