What is Christmas For 508?
Back in 2011, Faith Church in Auburn MA started a Christmas tradition to serve underprivileged families in the 508 community by providing Christmas gifts to kids ages 0-13. This tradition has grown and changed since then, but the mission remains the same - to love our community extravagantly during the Christmas season because of the extravagant way Jesus first loved us.
Families in need will register for the event and fill out a gift wishlist for each child. The CF508 team then works to purchase gifts, coordinate volunteers, and put on a fun family Christmas extravaganza! The second Saturday in December, registered families gather at Faith Church, and are led through this amazing walkthrough event with games, activities, and fun for the whole family! At the end of the event, families receive their bags of gifts to take home for Christmas morning.
The hope and goal is to expand CF508's impact each year, welcoming more and more families into this awesome event! In 2022 we reached 142 families - 360 kids total! If you'd like to join the efforts to help families each Christmas season, please get involved!
Family Registration is FULL!
2024 Registration will open in October 2024
We invite you to join our efforts to serve over 130 families in the Greater Worcester area with Christmas gifts this year. Your generosity will impact the lives of these families as we not only provide gifts, but also a fun filled family day where they can celebrate the hope of Christmas with us!
Our goal is to raise $30,000 that will be used to purchase gifts for each child, and supplies for all the activities on the day of the event.
There are so many teams that you can serve on to help make Christmas for 508 spectacular! Whether you like to take pictures, host games, prepare snacks or help park cars, there's a place for everyone to serve!
Many churches are known for what they're against, together let's be known by who we're for. Let's be united around a common mission to bring the hope of Jesus to families this Christmas season!
You will be able to see a description of all the ways you can volunteer once registration opens!
