Christmas with Mercy
Ho! Ho! Ho! It’s that time of year again! We are collecting toys for our popular Christmas with Mercy program and we need your help! Help spread the joy of giving this Christmas by donating toys for our Christmas with Mercy program! We are hoping to give toys to over 450 families this year, averaging over 1,000 children! We need lots of help in order to make this possible! We will be accepting NEW toys (valued at $25 or more) until December 1st.
Ways to make this possible:
1. Please consider hosting a Toy Drive! Please reach out to Rebecca Wire, our Outreach Coordinator, at rwire[at]houseofmercyva.org to receive flyers and a collection bin
2. Visit our Amazon WishList and pick out toys to be shipped directly to us!
3. Drop off toys directly! You can drop off your donation in our Thrift Store at 8182 Flannery Court in the designated bins.
Date and Time: Clients selected will be contacted via phone to schedule their appointment.
Location: House of Mercy Food Pantry
Donations Accepted: Now – December 1
Help spread the joy of giving this Christmas by volunteering at our Christmas with Mercy program. We are expecting to hand out toys to over 400 families this year, averaging over 1,000 children. We need lots of help in order to make this possible! A volunteer sign-up will be available soon!
We not only need volunteers for the days of the event, but also the weeks prior for setting up, sorting gifts and decorating! Please read through the description of the roles carefully, as certain duties have age restrictions. If there’s any confusion, please email Kyle Johnson, Volunteer Manager, at kjohnson[at]houseofmercyva.org
Please note, children, 15 years old and younger, may volunteer but they must be accompanied by an adult. All volunteers must be able to attentively listen to instructions and accurately follow them.
To be eligible for our Christmas with Mercy lottery, you must be a registered client with children in the household and be actively receiving services. Families will be selected via a random lottery. We will be contacting the randomly selected clients after Thanksgiving to schedule their appointments.
