Giving Hope Christmas is all about giving children in our community the opportunity to have presents to open on Christmas morning, even though their parents might not be able to afford gifts.

22% of American children under age 18 live in poverty. Many of these children will go without something under the Christmas tree this year. Giving Hope Christmas partners with local families and organizations to provide Christmas to a child in need and you can help!

Through Giving Hope Christmas, parents are given the opportunity to select Christmas gifts for their children and have the shopping experience at no cost.

We’ll be gathering in December to create a mall in our Oakleaf auditorium where parents will be able to shop for gifts, have the gifts wrapped, and leave knowing their child will wake up on Christmas morning with presents under the tree.

Thank you so much for sharing your time and your love to bless families for Christmas this year!
Below is some important information for you to know. 

Step One : Shopping

Once you have chosen a child to bless this Christmas, it’s time to start shopping! Feel free to be creative and have fun!

  • We ask that gifts are of an approximate value of $20-$25 (or more)
  • Please NO electronics (such as phones, laptops, video game systems)
  • Please NO clothes or shoes
  • Please use your discretion to make sure all gifts are appropriate and Christ-honoring.
  • We request you buy 3-4 gifts or more
  • No books
  • Include batteries if they are required for the gift

Once you have completed your shopping, please leave your gifts unwrapped. If possible, please include gift wrap and tape in your bag upon drop off.

If you run into a problem and are unable to shop for these gifts, please email me as soon as possible so we can reassign the gifts to another church family.  We understand that unexpected situations occur, so if you communicate that to us, we can ensure that every child receives gifts. 

Thank you again for blessing these children! Please contact your Location Outreach Team with any questions or via email at missions@elevatelife.tv.
