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 15. If you want to sponsor a Mission resident for Christmas, contact Melissa at (765) 288-9122, ext.104 or


There are many women and children that come to the Mission for family assistance. For these families, it is a struggle to meet life’s daily needs of food, clothing, and shelter. This Christmas the Mission wants to give these families gifts of daily living.

Some ideas:

  • Paper towels
  • Toilet paper
  • Laundry and dish soap
  • Hygiene supplies
  • Towels
  • Lotions
  • Any other special items you might wish to include


The Mission provides a festive Christmas meal with all the trimmings for residents and others in the community. This year the Mission’s Christmas meal will be served on Sunday, December 17 at noon. Volunteers are needed.
