Announcing the 2013 Rock City Christmas Give!

Posted on: November 16, 2013

For 2013 we are joining together once again to show the love of Christ and this year, the Christmas Give is getting a whole lot bigger! We’ve upped our goal from 450 to 800 pair of brand new shoes!

Here’s the plan:

We’re heading to Eakin Elementary on Thursday, December 12 to throw a huge party for the kids at the school, their families and teachers! We’ll be munching on cookies, hot chocolate, crafting and we’ve heard that Frosty is going to make an appearance! We’ll also have the privilege of putting brand new shoes on the sweet little feet of our Eakin friends.

We’re heading back to Weinland Park Elementary on Saturday, December 14 for one of our favorite days of the year! We’ll be flipping pancakes, singing, crafting and of course letting Santa know what’s on our list! And our favorite thing … fitting each student their with brand new shoes. It will be a blast!

-We’re making a stop at the Homeless Families Foundation on Monday, December 16 for a fun afternoon of yummy cookies fun crafts, dancing and much more! We’re bringing with us a ton of warm winter boots for the homeless children in their after school program and 100 brand new warm winter coats for the parents in the program!

We’re going global to our friends in San Salvador and providing each child in the Child Development Center in San Salvador a brand new pair of shoes. The Rock City team that travels there in March of 2014 will be presenting the shoes. It will be awesome!

AND, we’re supporting families in need this Christmas to show them the love of Christ. This might mean making sure the heat is working as families prepare for a cold winter or helping a single mom put gifts under the tree this Christmas. With your help we hope to be able to meet many needs this Christmas season.

You can partner with us in two ways:

First, you can GIVE to the Christmas Give.


Second, you can VOLUNTEER to serve at one of our Christmas Give Events.


Please join us in praying for those who will be impacted by the Christmas Give this year. May they experience God’s love.

Merry Christmas!
