House of Mercy has launched its seventh consecutive “Christmas with Mercy” program for the children of qualified clients. Individuals and community organizations provide gifts as a special Christmas donation for the children who receive food and clothing aid from the House of Mercy (HOM).
Staff and volunteers of HOM are planning the gifting program for more than 380 low-income children who are eligible to receive free gifts this year by virtue of their parents taking classes at House of Mercy. Relying upon the kindness of the community, House of Mercy hopes to enable our client parents to experience the joy of gift giving that reflects the love of Christ in this blessed season.
“We love to welcome groups and individuals to help with the annual event. People may visit our website, then follow the link to our SignUpGenius page, to sign up online for their volunteer job and time. Volunteer slots start on Thursday, Dec. 14 and end with the event on Saturday, Dec. 16 when our client parents come to the gift distribution,” said Ann Cimini, Executive Director.
Gifts are accepted at the HOM Donation Center during regular donation hours. The Donation Center is located at 8162 Flannery Court, Manassas. Gifts must be received at HOM by Thursday, Dec. 14. Because client children might be receiving only one gift, HOM requests the gifts to be valued at about $25.
