Keeping the Magic of Christmas Alive in Hamblen County since 1968.

Coordinating used toy distribution at Christmastime was one of Morristown-Hamblen Central Services’ first programs over 50 years ago. The program has only grown since then! In 1983, the Citizen Tribune marshaled the fundraising effort for the program and officially created The Holiday Hope Fund. The Holiday Hope Fund program provides toys for children and food baskets for economically disadvantaged families and individuals during Christmas. Over 1500 families in Hamblen County are served each year. This program is entirely community-funded and wouldn’t be possible without Hamblen County’s support.

The 2021 Citizen Tribune Holiday Hope Fund program may look a little different, but the heart of the program is still the same. We will still need your help to accomplish our fundraising goal, fulfill toy wishes, and make food boxes. Stay tuned for more specific information as the Christmas season draws closer.
