Our Impact


Years Serving scituate


families served each year


children Impacted

Since 1989, Scituate Community Christmas has served thousands needing assistance. Our focus includes individuals, families, children under the age of 18, the disabled, and elderly without family in the area. In 2015, we expanded our outreach to provide year round giving within the Scituate community. We collaborate with the Council on Aging, Police and Fire officials, Scituate Public Schools, local clergy, and Scituate’s Manager of Social Services to identify unfulfilled individual and community needs.

Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.

Through the years, SCC has served thousands of families needing assistance.
