Christmas House has been the annual fundraising project of Women’s Civic League for the last 53 years.  WCLC is a non-profit organization and Christmas House proceeds benefit local organizations and projects in Laramie County, Wyoming.  There are few non-profit organizations in the community that have not benefited from the hard work, dedication, and generosity of our members.

 

Each year the majority of the money raised through Christmas House is distributed through the club’s Community Grant Committee process and our Community Service Program Committees.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, for the first time in 52 years, Christmas House 2020 was not held at a physical location.  Instead the Christmas House was held online.  This included a crafts auction, baked goods sale, and raffle.  Due to the dedication of our members and faithful customers, we were still able to offer several grants.
