Christmas in Grundy County

Christmas in Grundy County

Christmas in Grundy County is an all-volunteer, county-wide, non-profit organization. We assist families who may be struggling financially in Grundy County during the Christmas season by providing a shopping experience characterized by choice and dignity. Serving families with children birth thru 18 years old is our first priority.


You must have a ticket in order to shop at the Christmas Store. Tickets can be obtained through Operation Threshold. To get on the mailing list please call Operation Threshold at (319) 824-3460 during their office hours: Monday-Thursday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. On Friday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.
