What Happened to Mission Christmas?

Posted November 6, 2013 Spiritual Formation Team

So you may be wondering...what happened to Mission Christmas? The video below explains why The Well and Neighborhood Thrift are not doing Mission Christmas this year.

Youth for Christ is carrying on Mission Christmas under a new title called the Christmas Gift Away. If you are interested in helping and would still like to give gifts here is the info you will need...

We need to stock a store where kids can shop. New and gently used items for all ages are needed as kids love shopping not only for themselves, but for their parents and siblings too. Gifts in the $5-10 range are suggested and items such as scarves, mittens, hats, slippers, candles, jewelry, picture frames, toys, dolls, art supplies, mugs, and ear phones. The Christmas Gift Away store will be open December 17-19 so donations will need to be in before then. Donations can be made to: Youth for Christ 1401 E Divisadero Fresno, CA 93721. For more information contact Esther at 559.916.1247.

Instead of Mission Christmas, we have been sharing a concept called Seasons of Compassion.
