Highview wants to share dignity and hope this Christmas. We will be creating a HopeChristmas Store where families can shop at discounted prices for gifts for their children. We are inviting all Highview members to participate by donating gifts. Purchase a popular, appropriate kid's gift for the price range and gender you choose. Bring the gift to your campus by Wednesday, December 1.
We also need volunteers to help in the store and by making follow-up visits with families following the event.
We are working with Central Campus, Bashford Manor Baptist, and public schools around our campuses. The store at Bashford Manor Baptist Church as we did last year. It is exciting to see how partnering with other believers serves to better impact the city with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our goal is to give people a hand up and not a handout. For this reason, we will sell each item at an 80% discount off the original retail price. We believe this will serve our community by empowering some of our neighbors with a sense of dignity and the ability to provide for themselves.
Ultimately, we hope to share the love of Christ. Sharing Christmas presents with families in need is fun, but we are more excited about sharing the gift of salvation through Jesus. Hope and dignity are ultimately rooted in him and his work on the cross. We hope this project will open the door for many gospel-centered conversations.
We'd love to have you help! Register to choose the day you want to volunteer, or sign up for both days. You may serve as a personal shopper, a hospitality volunteer, a setup crew member, a wrapping station helper, a store runner, or a directional assistant. Please keep in mind that childcare is not available for volunteers.
You may contribute to purchase gifts at Give to HopeChristmas.
