We want Christmas at the Muncie Mission to be a special time for the men living here. After all, this isn’t a commercial holiday, this is the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ!
On Christmas Eve, our residents will celebrate Christ’s birth with a special party. Each man will receive personal gifts purchased for him by caring people in the community. The evening ends with a wonderful meal and delicious holiday desserts.
The personal gifts come from those who sign up to be Wish List Sponsors. In November, each resident fills out a “Christmas Wish List” naming three gifts he would like to have for Christmas. Each gift is around $15. Then special individuals, families, churches or organizations sponsor one or more of the residents through Wish List program . Each sponsor makes a commitment to buy the gifts on the list. Then they wrap the gifts, complete with ribbons and bows, and deliver them to the Mission by December 12. If you want to sponsor a Mission resident for Christmas, contact Melissa at (765) 288-9122, ext.104 or firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please include a contact phone number with any email and add this email to your contacts so you will receive any return information.)
