Christmas on the Mountain is a charity in Cumberland Co. TN that is community based on the needs of the underprivileged children in this area. We solely depend on the community to help. We do 2 fund raisers a year. A dinner in the spring and a Motorcycle Charity ride in the summer are the only events that solely support purchasing presents for 500-700 children each year. Each event is sponsored by local business so all proceeds are 100% available for children at Christmas. Each year starting in November we put out big red barrels in local businesses for everyone to donate a new unwrapped toy. Then we have a community wide wrapping party each December, where we invite the whole community to wrap the presents for the children before they are delivered.
How Christmas on the Mountain works: Each year the Dame of Christmas on the Mountain works with all the elves and the SBI (Santa Bureau of Investigation) to determine the families in need. The community then comes together by monetary donation and donation of toys to make 500-700 children’s Christmas wishes come true.
