Our goal is to provide each child with 3 gifts, a game and/or book, and stocking stuffers. The donations that we receive will determine the value and quantity of actual gifts your child(ren) will receive. Clothing and bicycle donations are limited and may be used. We do our best to make sure used items are in good or like new condition before including them in your gift packages.

Note, you can only apply to one charity for toys- please disclose applications made to other organizations as we do cross check.

EACH family who is approved for assitance receives a large box of food, a turkey and gifts for each child between 0-17 years old or registered High School Students if over age of 17. We also provide our low income seniors with a gift certificate from a local grocer.
IF YOU DON'T NEED ASSISTANCE PLEASE CONSIDER 
DONATING. LAST YEAR WE SUPPLIED TOYS TO NEARLY 200
LOCAL CHILDREN. We are collecting canned food, new toys, new bikes or cash donations through 12/11/17. We then inventory what we have and go shopping for the rest.

We are a small organization and limit our assistance to Orange City residents in an attempt to take care of our own community. If you or someone you know is in need and in lives outside of Orange City please contact your Chamber of Commerce for a list of charities in your area.

Sorosis Club's Annual May Banquet

New officers were sworn in at our Annual Installation Banquet held at Karlings Inn, Deleon Springs. A BIG Congratulations goes out to Marcia Wood, who was nominated Woman of the Year!! Thank you Beth Riley for taking such awesome pictures and video to cover our celebration. We thank all of our members, their family, friends and all of the support we receive from the citizens, businesses, city and surrounding communities. Our club was organized by a small group of women in 1958, who wanted to make a difference in their small town by focusing on the youth. Our fundraising efforts provide scholarships, school supplies, fun events, volunteer opportunities, food and gifts at Christmas. This tiny group ofwoman has grown tremendously and our annual celebration is a reminder to us all to stay true to ourselves and our mission, appreciate each other, help one another, and make that difference.
