The LMS Compassion Place 2020 Miracle of Christmas Project is underway, and we need your help to provide food, gifts, and the story of Christmas for over 150 families this year!

How You Can Help

Due to the pandemic, we have had to make changes to our normal Miracle of Christmas activities. We are asking more people to sponsor a family in need by filling a gift basket and also a food basket, if possible. (Last year, we had 123 sponsored family baskets, and only 39 that had to be made at LMS packings. We’re hoping to do even better this year.) 

In addition, we will still need donations of:

  • 10-12 lb. Frozen Turkeys
  • Frozen Whole Chickens
  • Non-Perishable Food Items
  • Financial Donations

Enjoy a family project by truly sharing Christmas!  

      Consider adopting one (or more) of our families and filling a box for them.  Make it a family activity this year, or perhaps a service project for your group or congregation!   


  For more information, please call Tena Rooks at 410-636-0123 or email

Have time to give?  

      Adult volunteers are needed for packing food and gifts for any families we have that are not “adopted” by individuals or groups. Both of these events are at LMS Compassion Place headquarters located at 601 Hammonds Lane, Brooklyn Park, MD 21225. Please contact Kim Naumann at 410-636-0123 or email for times and dates.

No time to spare?

Financial donations are also needed to ensure all of our families are provided for this Christmas. If you would like to give a financial gift to help support the project, please click on the “Donate Now” button in the upper right-hand corner and designate “Miracle of Christmas.” (You may even make your gift In Honor or In Memory of someone special. An appropriate notification will be sent, and you will receive an immediate receipt for your gift by email.)


     Checks may be mailed to: Lutheran Mission Society, P.O. Box 438, Linthicum, MD 21090. Please memo your check: Miracle of Christmas.
