Christmas Basket Project

Each year community organizations in Placer County collect and distribute food, clothing, and toys to families in their community. Soroptimist International of Colfax is again preparing for the 40th annual Christmas Basket Project in Colfax.

Applications are required to participate and completed applications must be received by Dec. 3. Mail applications to the appropriate organization listed on the back based on physical address. Applicants from Colfax, Applegate, Gold Run, Alta, Dutch Flat, Emigrant, and Soda Springs need to mail their applications to Soroptimist of Colfax P.O. Box 475 Colfax, CA 95713.
