What is Christmas Bureau?

The Christmas Bureau is an annual holiday assistance program coordinated by Catholic Charities Eastern Washington, Volunteers of America, and the Spokesman-Review.  The program is made possible by generous monetary funds and volunteer hours donated by community members and organizations.
