Christmas Wishes 2020

Click here to make your wish:

Christmas Wishes was established to help meet the needs of our community members here in the Barnum Community. All wishes are confidential, but we do need basic information so we can help make these wishes come true to the best of our ability and funding. The idea behind the Wishes is to quietly nominate someone to receive a wish or a need you see or you can request an item for yourself or your own family as well.

An Advisory Committee will consider all wishes submitted and decide which wishes can be fulfilled.

Example: My neighbor Little Suzy needs a jacket, her dad is currently between jobs, she loves to be outside and comes to help me shovel snow. She lives at 123 Side Street, Barnum. Her size is child 6/7. She loves orange. My name is Jane Doe, phone #218- 867-5309.

*Paper forms are also at the Barnum City Office. You can fill out and leave in the locked payment box.
