Honoring our community’s foster families

For more than 20 years, the University City church of Christ family has hosted its annual “Christmas for the Community.” In cooperation with and in support of the Partnership for Strong Families, UCCC says thank you to families of the Alachua County community who open their homes and lives to serve as foster families for children in need.

The “Christmas for the Community” celebration provides each attending child with a Christmas gift donated by UCCC member families. Also attending and supporting the event are student athletes from many of the University of Florida’s sports teams who autographed posters for attendees; while sharing a traditional Christmas luncheon and awaiting the appearance of Santa Claus.
