Dozens of Christmas trees sparkle in various color-coordinated hues throughout April Niamtu’s Richmond home, some traditional (think pretty silver and blue decorations), some contemporary (feline print ornaments and sassy black accents). Stoic nutcrackers of all sizes stand at the ready on shelves and in corner nooks, and with a simple audible command, festive holiday lights illuminate the living room, basking everything in a soft glow.

About the Richmond Christmas Mother Fund

The Richmond Christmas Mother Fund began in 1935 with the mission to help bring Christmas to underprivileged families in the City of Richmond. More than 80 years later, the nonprofit organization, run by the Richmond Times-Dispatch, continues to distribute assistance through partnerships with The Salvation Army, The Community Foundation and FeedMore. Donations go toward winter coats, toys, meals, and the financial and emotional support that some Richmond families need to celebrate a truly special holiday season.
