Country Santa Program collects toys for needy children across the
upstate of South Carolina.
Since 1978, Mr. Buddy Cox of Pumpkintown has helped needy
children in the foothills of South Carolina at Christmas. He is affectionately
known as the "COUNTRY SANTA".
In 2019, we helped approximately 3010 children from 1,170
families in 5 counties
- Due to the Covid virus, we are limiting
the number of volunteers working inside the building at any given
time to 5 - 6 people.
- Required face covering, mask or shield
- Anyone who has a cough, fever, or recent
exposure to someone with the virus should not enter the building.
- Due to this limitation, we have made the
difficult decision to limit our assistance to families in Pickens
Operation Hours: Monday - Saturday 9:00 am to 3:00 pm /
Sunday 1:30 - 3:30 pm
Children don't understand that life is hard and sometimes there just isn't enough for
Christmas presents. A child believes that Santa will find them Christmas morning.
"Share A Smile With A Child"
