Christmas Outreach Program
Purchase clothing or toys
This program started in 1987 at Faith Lutheran in Troy.
We have provided gifts to over 77,000 children in our community. We praise God for giving us this connection with the children and that He has included us in His plan.
As we continue to navigate the ongoing pandemic we believe that there is still great need, and we appreciate any help and assistance you can offer to make a difference in the lives of these children.
There are three ways you can impact underserved youth this Christmas:
Request a Child (or multiple children) to sponsor and do the shopping (Sign up below).
Make a Donation below and we will do the shopping.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does GFAGC Christmas Sponsorship program work?
All year long, we partner with churches and local charities to help them reach out to the children and families in their communities and to connect them to Christ. Our largest program is the Christmas Sponsorship program. Our partners send their requests for families in the community that need help to provide Christmas gifts for their children. The children are identified as belonging to families or foster homes that are financially impoverished. GFAGC finds sponsors for the children, coordinates and distributes all of the gifts to ensure they get to the appropriate children.
