Each year Wildwood partners with other churches and Mission Norman to bring Christmas to those in our community who need some extra support. Again this year Wildwood is coordinating the stocking of the Mission Norman Christmas Shoppe with toys.  Parents screened by Mission Norman will be able to get free gifts to give to their children this Christmas. Last year we served 600 kids!  This is a great opportunity for you and your family to make a difference!

What can I donate?


Christmas Gifts

While Christmas is not about the gifts under the tree for us as believers, it is about giving to others and this is one way we can share Christ’s love this Christmas.  It is our desire to provide 3 gifts for each child served by Mission Norman (one stocking stuffer in the price range of $1-$4, one gift in the $5-$14 range and one gift in $15+ range).  Along with the 3 gifts the children will receive a Bible!  Last Christmas season donations from Wildwood and other churches helped 600 kids receive gifts & Bibles on Christmas! To accomplish this goal, we need your help!  The most difficult gifts to stock are the gifts for teenagers, both girls and boys.

Need Ideas?  Check out the Mission Norman Christmas Amazon Wishlist HERE.   You can mail the gifts directly to Wildwood if you would like to.

Please return your unwrapped gift(s) by December 8.    The collection boxes will be located in the Gathering Hall and Children’s Building entrances.  If you are unable to come inside the building you can leave gifts outside the office door (circle drive upstairs) Monday – Friday from 9am – 4pm. We greatly appreciate your donations!  We couldn’t help with this outreach without your help!

Financial Gifts

Your financial gifts can make a difference this Christmas!  It is such a blessing to have some funds to be able to purchase gifts that are needed.   If you don’t enjoy shopping, or you are unable to get out to shop then giving a financial gift is a great option for your family.  We have shoppers that are ready to shop the sales this Christmas season so the money can go as far as possible.  Any amount is needed and appreciated!  Thank you!  Click the Give Here button below to give online.
