The Oakwood Secret Santa Car Show is a labor
of love bringing automotive enthusiasts together for a fun day of sharing their hobby while at the same time raising funds to support a very worthy cause.
Established in 2010, the Oakwood Secret Santa Car Show began its journey by raising $1,400 and bringing Christmas cheer to six needy children in the Oakwood, Georgia area.
Since then, we've raised over $56,512.00 and have helped spread Christmas cheer to 304 more children!
Who We Are
The Oakwood Secret Santa Car Show is the primary fundraiser of Community Care and Share, Inc, a private non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization established to provide consistent support of the City of Oakwood's Secret Santa Project. Community Care and Share, Inc has a volunteer board of community leaders and citizens who give their time and talent to make this event possible.
Spreading the true meaning of the Christmas season by giving to those in need, the Oakwood Secret Santa Car Show has worked hard to grow the funds needed to provide a Merry Christmas to every needy child in our area.
Children who benefit from this program are recommended by local educators and members of our public safety departments.
After being carefully screened, eligible children receive new winter coats, shoes, socks, sweaters, items for infants and toiletries along with a toy or other item appropriate for their age. None of the personal information on our recipients is ever shared publicly.
