History

Christmas Charities was founded in 1949 by Milton K. Cummings, to help local families after a boll weevil infestation devastated the area cotton crop. Since then CCYR has been providing less fortunate children and their families with basic necessities, to help improve the quality of their lives and encourage children to stay in school.
