Clay County Christmas Project
The Clay County Christmas party, a proactive way to provide direct services to needy children, takes place about the first weekend each December. Each year approximately 180 families with 450 children are involved in the project. Participating children attend our party at The Church of the Risen Lord in Maysel and have their photos taken with Santa, enjoy cookies, receive stockings from the elves, and pick up their bundles of Christmas gifts and food boxes.

Thanks to our students, families, faculty and staff, and numerous other supporters, the Clay County Christmas Party has been a happy happening for over twenty years. Children's gifts, stockings, stocking stuffers, and food boxes fill CCHS's classrooms in preparation for the trip to Risen Lord parish. Sacred Heart Grade School children, their families, and faculty and staff have a wonderful tradition of involvement by providing over 200 food boxes for distribution to families at the party.
