Christmas in the City is our largest outreach event of the year, created in 2008 in partnership with HOPE’s Interfaith Coalition, giving hundreds of families in need the opportunity to choose gifts for their children ages 0-18. There will be toys, games, gift cards, blankets, books, pants, new socks and underwear, and even stocking stuffers! Once the parents have selected gifts, they are reunited with their children who have been making crafts and visiting Santa. The family then receives a professional family portrait, a bag of food including holiday goodies, free lunch, and the opportunity to visit prayer tables and a variety of local partner resource agencies.
