Christmas in Berthoud Mission
Christmas in Berthoud is a community-wide effort to bring holiday joy to those in need in our community by donating our time, talents and financial resources. The goal this year is to raise $15,000 in which 100% of the funds will be distributed to families in our town. We collect donations and organize fundraisers so that we can purchase toys, gift cards, grocery cards and more for those people who need them the most in Berthoud. Our fundraising activities start the first weekend in December. Many people in our town struggle with joblessness or a reduced income and are on the verge of losing their homes, businesses, or even the hope to face another day. Please join hands with us this Christmas season!

History beginning in 2004…..
In 2004 Festival of Trees was begun by Grace Place Church in Berthoud and the event has evolved into Christmas in Berthoud to specifically help families in need. CIB has grown into a community-wide annual effort and has helped hundreds of Berthoud families in need during the holidays. Many thanks to the Chamber of Commerence, Berthoud United Methodist Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, Boy and girl Scout troops, Berthoud Schools, Grace Place, Mindful, Berthoud Presbyterian, Bums of Berthoud, Hays Market, The Berthoud Surveyor and the Berthoud Public Library, and various local businesses.
