Mission Christmas :: Change Starts Now!

November.4.2009

Today is the rollout of Mission Christmas. Something that we believe, as a church, will contribute in a positive way to our work in the downtown community this Christmas season.

Our goal with Mission Christmas is to provide high quality, new and gently used toys and gifts for hard working families in the downtown Fresno neighborhood at an affordable price.  We believe that there is dignity for families in purchasing their own Christmas gifts for their children and family.

How does it work? Donate new & gently used toys and clothes, for children of all ages, to Neighborhood Thirft. We will sell them, not give them away, at a discounted price to working parents who can afford them. Those who are unemployed will be able to work at Neighborhood Thrift for vouchers – and with these vouchers they can purchase Christmas gifts at Neighborhood Thrift. Purchase proceeds will be used to provide jobs and training at the store for community residents. Watch this video to see what this could look like…

Vodpod videos no longer available.
