Help families in need – provide Christmas gifts for children

Many struggling parents in Greater Cincinnati want to make Christmas special for their children but can’t afford to buy full-priced gifts. City Gospel Mission’s Christmas Store partners with families to make this possible. At our Store, low-income parents pay $8 per child to select one new toy and one new clothing item. Volunteers share God’s love, help parents choose the perfect toys and clothing, and help wrap the gifts – all in a festive, loving atmosphere. Your Christmas gift will be an example of Christ’s love to families in need this holiday season.

Our Impact

By the Numbers

Each year at our Christmas Store, over 350 low-income parents shop for gifts for more than 1,200 children.

Our Approach

Our Christmas Store is always in partnership with churches because we believe that a year-round relationship with our shoppers is important. Partner churches identify families in need in their congregation and connect them with our Store. We ask parents to pay a small fee of $8 for the gifts so they have the dignity of ownership and providing for their children.
