This is how we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ! We serve over 3,000 homeless men, women, boys, and girls that come to the Mission for a delicious Christmas dinner, gift giveaway, and more. Come join the effort as our community gathers together to ensure that no one feels forgotten during Christmas. You can provide hope during this special time of year by donating food, funds, or unwrapped gifts for all ages, and/or by volunteering to assist preparation for the event or working the day of the event.

Donate to this Event

The gift items you donate will bring joy to children and teens who may not otherwise receive presents this Christmas. Toys, books, electronics, and gift cards are all wonderful choices. Imagine the excitement on their faces as they unwrap your thoughtful gifts!

Consider what you would give to a young friend or family member for Christmas, and bring your new, unwrapped items for kids and teens to the Mission by December 20th.
