 The David Lamm Foundation helps children have a Merry Christmas who might not otherwise have much under the tree. Your donations help children, ages 3 – 13 and $0.99 of each dollar donated goes to them and is tax deductible. Each child is given a $100.00 gift card and allowed to shop for themselves.

Santa Lamm started 21 years ago on a whim and has grown into an annual tradition. In the beginning I was hopeful we could help a few children and through the years the generosity of the community has been overwhelming. We have hosted more than 4200! Thank you!


The Lamm Foundation's one purpose is to make Christmas a little brighter for underprivileged children, ages 3-13, in Jacksonville. Each child gets a $100, tax-free gift card from Walmart and gets to shop for themselves.  


We work with various agencies, schools, and churches to identify our kids, with an emphasis on military families. It's our way of thanking the men and women who serve our country and protect our way of life.


This year's event is Dec. 23 at the Regency Super Walmart. Registration is from 9-11a.m. and every child must be pre- registered and accompanied by a parent or guardian.


All donations are tax deductible. Your donation can be made on our website or by check made out to The David Lamm Foundation and mailed to The David Lamm Foundation at 5430 Whitney St., Jacksonville 32277. Donations of all levels are greatly appreciated.


The Foundation is an all-volunteer organization without any expense for staff. Our only costs are the letters being mailed to previous donors.  I'm thrilled that my oldest son Tom and his spouse Dee Dee have joined our core group, which includes Alex and Paige.  


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

David Lamm, President
