Reset Ministries is reaching out to families that are struggling during the Christmas season. Most of these families are hardworking families who don’t qualify for government assistance, making this season among the most stressful for them. Many of these families do without Christmas because they simply can’t afford it. Research shows that the stress of Christmas leaves many adults feeling overwhelmed, stretched thin, and even ashamed that they can’t give their family a Christmas. The Christmas Wish List helps to combat these feelings by providing Christmas gifts for the entire family.
The Christmas Wish Distribution registers families who can’t afford Christmas and then gives the community the opportunity to sponsor them. Each family on our Christmas list receives gifts for each member of their family. Along with the gifts, each family also receives literature that introduces them to Jesus and helps them grow in the Lord. Since its inception in 2015, the Christmas Wish List has provided gifts to more than 300 children and adults. That number is just a drop in the bucket compared to the actual need.
You can help! You can sponsor a family by monetary donation or by purchasing gifts for them. Here’s what to do:
Monetary Donation – To give a monetary gift, just complete the form below. Put “Christmas” in the note, and be sure to give us your address so that we can send you a giving statement. It takes $30 to provide gifts for one person, but your donation of any size helps bring joy and love to hurting families. All donations given through this form go directly to help purchase Christmas gifts. Not one cent goes toward administrative costs.
Sponsorship – To sponsor a family directly, please visit the Facebook group where the families are listed or contact usfor a list. You choose a family from the list, tell us their ID number, shop for them, and bring unwrapped gifts to the collection point by the due date. It’s that simple! Soon after the due date, we will have a wrap party to wrap, tag, and prep all of the gifts in preparation for distribution the week before Christmas.
At Reset Ministries, one of our goals is to help people understand their identity and purpose. Every family that receives gifts through the Christmas Wish List also receives literature that explains God’s love for them, their identity in Christ Jesus, and God’s plan and purpose for them. By sponsoring a family or giving a donation, you meet a need that is physical, emotional, and spiritual. Thank you for partnering with Reset Ministries to share the love of Jesus with others this Christmas season!
