Mercy Ministry Christmas Programs
As Christmas approaches, we ask that you remember Mercy Ministry in your holiday plans. It's important to stop and reflect on the joy and blessings in your own life while also being aware that not everyone is so fortunate. While shopping for gifts and gathering with loved ones, please consider setting aside part of your budget to support the work of Mercy Ministry with a tax-deductible donation or sponsor a Holiday Toy or Food Drive to benefit Mercy Ministry Christmas Assistance Programs.
Let's Make A Merry Mercy Ministry Christmas! The holiday season is a time of joy for many, but for some, that joy is tempered by poverty. For many families in the Metropolitan area of St. Louis is struggling to make ends meet, in some cases holiday meals and gift giving are out of reach.
You can help by taking part in Mercy Ministry Gift's Come In Boxes Christmas Program. December 1 through December 18, you, your family, your business, or your organization are connected with needy families during the holiday season. You can participate in the full adoption program or choose one or more related holiday opportunities.
The Gift's Come In Boxes Program is for working class families who have suffered a recent financial hardship who don't qualify for government assistance but has been drastically affected by the economy. Christmas is a time for giving, but for some they may have little or no money to purchase gift's for their children.
