Be part of the . . .

      The LMS Compassion Place 2019 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!


      There are many ways to be involved!


      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.)


      If you would like a more personal, hands-on experience — one that is a great project for families or groups and helps bring home the love and sharing that is a hallmark of Christmas —  look through the list below. There’s a way to participate that’s designed just for you!


How You can Help


Enjoy shopping?  


      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!   General donations of food and new gift items (with tags) are also needed.


Love to bake?


      We include Christmas cookies in each box, and rely on your donations of baked cookies (needed at LMS headquarters by Thursday, Dec. 5th)


Have time to spare?


      Adult volunteers are needed for Food Packing (Monday, Dec. 9th) and Gift Packing (Monday, Dec. 16th) events. Both of these events are at LMS Compassion Place headquarters located at 601 Hammonds Lane, Brooklyn Park, MD 21225 and run from 9:00 AM – 12:00 noon.


No time to spare?


      Financial donations are also needed to ensure all of our families are provided for this Christmas. Click the “Donate Now” button to the upper right and designate “Miracle of Christmas.” Checks may be mailed to: Lutheran Mission Society, P.O. Box 438, Linthicum, MD 21090. Please memo your check: Miracle of Christmas.
