Every year we rely upon our generous community to help make Christmas morning magical for the children in our care. We have each child make a list of their top three “must have” items along with several other gifts that they would enjoy. After some negotiating about what is allowed on the “must have” list (like you probably do with your own children!) we enlist the help of our community to provide those gifts.
We are so thankful for the donation of unwrapped gifts, for businesses like Best Bodies and schools like Lamar that will put up angel trees, and financial contributions so that we can purchase the remainder of the lists. Many of the children at Hope Village have never had a joyful Christmas morning. We want to give them the warmth and excitement of waking up to find presents under the tree just for them. If you are interested in donating unwrapped presents for our children, please drop them off by December 16th to the Hope Village office at:
2433 23rd Avenue
Meridian, MS 39301
If you would prefer to make a donation so that we can purchase those “must haves,” you can send us a check or donate online.
Thank you again for playing a part in making Christmas special for Hope Village children!
