Join us for Giving Hope this Christmas

Giving Hope is about giving children more than just a gift under the tree. By sharing the love of Jesus, we are giving families the lifelong gift of hope.

About Giving Hope

The Giving Hope event is about more than just a gift under a tree. It’s about giving the families the Gift of Hope, Jesus, the true meaning of Christmas. Through our local school partnerships, we identify families in need and invite them to a Christmas Shopping Mall experience hosted by Desperation Church at one of our event locations listed below. As parents arrive, they are hosted by a team of welcoming volunteers, including a personal shopper ready to help them select gifts for their children at no cost. Each family hears the Gospel, receives a Bible, and hopefully makes a new friend. Parents walk away empowered to be the hero on Christmas morning with the gifts they’ve selected that have been wrapped with love by our amazing volunteers.

Become A Sponsor

Giving Hope is made possible through the generosity of individuals just like you. Help us create this special moment for families on Christmas morning by stopping by one of our Giving Hope tables in the foyer of a Desperation Church location on Sundays throughout November. Here you’ll be able to select an “Adoption Packet” that shares the age and gender of the child in need.  We’ll provide you with a suggested shopping list so that every child receives gifts of similar value and quantity.  The average sponsorship and shopping cost is around $200. If you are not available to pick up a packet, shop, or you’d like to do something above and beyond, use the donation link below. Gifts of any amount go a long way in helping us meet the needs of our community and provide for families through Giving Hope. From $5 to $5,000, you can help us meet the needs of our community by providing gifts, or helping to underwrite the costs, or providing for extra items, like jackets, to be purchased in bulk and provided in addition to gifts provided through sponsorship.
