Angel Tree starts with a gift and leads to so much more. It's a way to help restore/maintain relationships between children and their incarcerated parents. It also leads to an opportunity to create lasting connections with prisoners' families in our community!
Each year we partner with Angel Tree to provide gifts to kids whose parents won't be around for the holidays on their behalf this Christmas season. It's simple! Click the link below, claim a child to sponsor, and drop an unwrapped gift in a gift bag with the child's names by December 9th, 2021, to the Front Desk during the week (Mon-Thurs) or on Sundays in The Corner.
On Sunday, December 12th, from 12 PM - 2 PM will be hosting an in-person pick-up party for each family receiving gifts.
On Saturday, October 16, thousands of abolitionists will hit the streets in hundreds of cities across the globe to walk in a single file line–holding posters and handing out flyers–to reach their city with the message of human trafficking and how to end it.
This is your chance to make an impact and pave the way for a future world without slavery, where justice is served, and freedom prevails for all.
Join us on Oct 16th, 9AM-12 PM in Downtown Toledo

Holiday In Reach
While the Holiday season is typically spent building memories, enjoying time with loved ones, and sharing a meal around a table. We understand that this is not always the case for everyone.
This year we would like to connect people who may be lonely or in need of help this holiday season. Specifically, those who are experiencing financial hardship recently lost a loved one, or simply a student that can't make it home to visit with their own family.
Here are a couple of ways for you to get involved:
• Hosting someone at your home for the holiday(s)
• Connecting with someone and offering to bring them a meal or spend time with them
• Donating monetarily to help those who may have been financially impacted. Any amount is welcomed. We will use these funds to purchase gift cards.
"A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed." Proverbs 11:25
We care deeply about the next generation and believe in lifting them up. During these difficult times, we have partnered with multiple organizations to provide tutors as a way for school-agers to get some extra help.
Whether you want to tutor virtually OR in-person, we have options on how you can come alongside a student this year. Click below to learn more.
