Preparing for Christmas

Each year, as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, we are blessed to help our clients at Christmas. This assistance is coordinated with churches, agencies, and families from across Morgan County and beyond to serve our neighbors in need.

Those who are not sponsored by Dec. 1 will be invited to visit the Churches in Mission Christmas Shops in Mooresville and Martinsville. The shop experience includes gifts and clothing for children, the makings of a Christmas dinner, and a useful household gift for the family.

Items needed most for our Christmas Shop at this time include:

  • Clothing for Children and Teens, for boys and girls sizes 6-18 as well as men’s sizes S-XL
  • Pajamas for Children and Teens, for boys and girls sizes 6-18
  • Family Games & Puzzles for all ages – board games as well as card games (please note we already received a large supply of Candyland games)
  • Gifts for Teen Boys – Axe & other cologne sets, dart boards, basketballs, footballs, camping gear, small electronics, etc.
  • Bath towels and full-sized blankets for our household gifts.

The 2020 Experience

The 2020 experience changed families’ lives in many ways. At Churches in Mission, we’re proud to say that we were able to remain open all year, despite the pandemic, despite food shortages, despite a tornado and weeklong power outage at our Mooresville location, and despite the many lesser challenges that occurred. Changing our format to drive-through assistance, providing proxy food deliveries to the homebound, and increasing cleaning and hygiene protocol throughout our buildings became the norm for us in 2020.

 

While 2021 opened with many of the same issues, we look forward to increasing our in-person classes and interactions with our families. We strive to help our families better their situations as best we can. And most of all, we thank the volunteers, partners, and donors who helped get us this far. We could not do it without you.
