The model is Jesus.
The motivation is love.
Our mission this year is to continue to demonstrate the love of Jesus in a tangible way to friends and families in the community. Christmas Cheer baskets serve as a way to make a connection, fill a need, and open the door to other ways that we can be of service.
Christmas Cheer runs from October 31, 2021 until November 28, 2021.

Why Christmas Cheer?
Christmas Cheer is an annual campaign to bless families and individuals who have experienced a loss, crisis, or are going through a challenging season. In a year filled with uncertainties and worries, the blessings and outreach of this program are needed now more than ever.
Get Involved This Year
This year, we will not be accepting blessing baskets instead families will be blessed with a variety of gift cards purchased from any of the major grocery stores, clothing, gas, and shopping malls. You can sponsor a family or individual by simply donating any dollar amount that you are led to give. Your cash donation will be used to purchase gift cards on your behalf. Any donations above $20 that are received and designated to Christmas Cheer will be given a tax receipt. Thank you for supporting the Christmas Cheer initiative.
