Since 2010 the Buckeye Lake Historical Society has sponsored the Kids’ Community Christmas to provide toys and food baskets to children and families in need over the holiday. The partnership between the Salvation Army of Newark and the Museum makes sure that our kids have some really cool presents and yummy food for Christmas.
This year the Museum, with the generosity of several members and friends, helped to raise over $1,800 that provided for 13 families and 36 children.
This is an annual program so people can donate all year long. Most of the items do come in over the last two weeks of December but there is always need throughout the year. The generous support of community members in the Buckeye Lake Region is always appreciated.
