For the past 70 years, the we've been celebrating the holidays by giving to those less fortunate, with a Christmas Themed telethon. This live telethon event is held every December to raise money for Douglas County and surrounding areas. Many businesses, organizations, individuals and volunteers have made this possible through out the years. This year, make it your year!

Thank You for visiting!

2019 marks the 71st year of the Jingle Bells telethon.

The event is held every December, raises money from a live telethon-and all of the funds raised go to helping those in need during the holidays.

So many businesses, organizations, individuals and volunteers have made this possible through the years and we are truly grateful to have those relationships. These efforts always serve as a great community unifier.

Volunteers, especially the kids, learn the value of giving to others and the spirit of volunteerism and community. We recognize that in our yearly scholarship given to High School seniors as well.

It cannot be said enough how humbled we are to be blessed by your generosity and caring. Together we can make a difference not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year!
