Sharing Your Joy With A Child This Christmas – Ways to Give at the Holidays
In giving many things for the care of the children of The Masonic Home for Children, offering the blessings of the holiday season to one who is apart from their family or experiencing their first Christmas with hope, stability, and security is one of the greatest gifts our supporters give during this special time of year.
Your help during the holidays can fulfill a Christmas Wish, provide a valuable need for success in life, or give to the overall mission of MHCO now and into 2016 and beyond. With your charity, support, and faith comes our commitment to make the most of every donation to help bring joy at Christmas, while acknowledging our givers and the true value of every gift for this Home.
With this mind and in honoring our donors and their importance in the lives of our children – at Christmas and every day a child needs our care – we ask for your consideration of these special ways to give to The Masonic Home for Children during this memorable time of year.
BECAUSE OF YOU, A CHILD CAN HAVE A CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER. . .
Christmas Wish List – 2015 Holiday Needs List
Gift Card Angel Tree – a gift card tree can provide for specific children, cottages, or for general use throughout the campus – all year long. Easy to purchase, they can be given in designated amounts, $1 to $1000, and most importantly, can be used by our children and our Home throughout! Visit our Needs List for a list of cards that can help our children.
Sponsor an Outing or Event for a Child at Christmas – One of the greatest gifts our children can receive is one that creates positive experiences and lasting memories. A simple trip to a restaurant, a day off of campus, the chance to enjoy something new or different – these are the opportunities that any child would desire and ones that are rare and cherished by our children. Apart from their families during the holidays, these opportunities last beyond the holidays in the minds and hearts of our children – AND YOU CAN MAKE THEM HAPPEN!
