What is Christmas Bureau?

It is an incredible annual holiday assistance program coordinated by Catholic Charities Spokane, Volunteers of America, and The Spokesman-Review.  This amazing program - made possible with generous monetary funds and many volunteer hours donated by community members and organizations -  provides toys, books, and grocery store vouchers for thousands of low income individuals and families.
