Back to School Program

Every August, Our Child Support Department and the employees of CCDJFS give away dozens of book bags filled with school supplies to all ages of children. We receive donations from businesses, stores and our employees.

Foster Care Christmas Project

Every year we try to make Christmas wonderful for every child in our Foster Care Program. This is always accomplished because of the caring donors throughout our county and agency. As a county employee, you can now have a payroll deduction in place to donate to this project. For as little as $1.00 per pay, an employee can help to put a smile on the face of a child in foster care on Christmas Day.

Casual Dress Fridays

Every payday Friday, employees are encouraged to dress casual for the day and by doing so they must donate $1.00 to participate. We collect these monies and give to different charities each time. Some of these charities include:

  • Relay for Life
  • Caring for Kyes / Caring for Kids
  • Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry
  • Foster Children Christmas
