The Story

Christmas is about giving and feeling joyful during this special time of the year. It’s about celebrating with family and friends in a warm home. Unfortunately, not everyone will have the opportunity to celebrate this tradition. Nearly 7,500 residents of Morgan County live in poverty, 3,000 of which are children.

This year, #GivingTuesday is November 29, and once again the Community Foundation of Morgan County has teamed up with Citizens Bank Indiana to offer a $1-for-$1 match* on #GivingTuesday to the Morgan County Christmas Assistance Program.

Begin the Giving Season with a small online donation to support the Morgan County Christmas Assistance Program through Churches in Mission.

To maximize the resources within Morgan County, Churches in Mission is leading the coordination of a variety of agencies and groups to assist families from Eminence to Morgantown, Paragon to Waverly.   More than 1,000 families will need assistance this Christmas in the form of children’s gifts and holiday meals. In 2015, $12,620 was donated during the 24 hour online event, funding 400 families at the Churches in Mission Christmas Shops in Martinsville and Mooresville.

*Up to $2,500

How to Get Involved

Donate on Giving Tuesday: All online donations made during the Day of Giving Campaign sponsored by Citizens Bank will be matched $1-for-$1. Donations as small as $5 to $10 can make a lasting impact on families during the Christmas season, larger donations, such as $25 to $100 will assist multiple families through this $1-for-$1 match on Giving Tuesday.

Volunteer: School classes and groups, civic organizations, scout troops, and youth groups have all helped to keep the Churches in Mission “Christmas Store” and pantry stocked.

Donate Clothing, Toys and Food: What is Christmas without a festive holiday meal and a present or two under the Christmas Tree? Consider purchasing items for the Morgan County Christmas Assistance program while you are out shopping on Black Friday and online on Cyber Monday. Additionally, consider decluttering bulky winter sweaters and coats no longer worn, and help keep children and adults warm throughout the Christmas Season and into the New Year.
