Sam Sandos Christmas Basket Program

Call for volunteers

The Sam Sandos Christmas Program began in 1978 in the kitchen of Sam and

Ethel Sandos, as a means to help out a few families who were down on their luck.

Sam and Ethel provided a basket of food and a Christmas tree for the holidays. A

few years later, Sam and his good friend, Joe Lucero, saw a need in the community

for families who couldn't afford a holiday meal. They worked with the St. Vincent

de Paul Society of Presentation Church to provide food baskets to needy

families. Thus began, “The District Three Christmas Basket Program.” Designed

to “Serve those who would, otherwise, not be served.” The program builds

and delivers food baskets complete with a turkey and all of the trimmings for a

holiday meal. This is done on the Saturday before Christmas.
