Monthly Spotlight

Gathering Joy

Land O Lakes - Deliver Christmas gifts to some of the most vulnerable children in the Tampa area. Stay for a while to offer a little holiday help to the families that have requested it.

Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 Noon
Age Requirement: All ages. Family Friendly. 

NOMORE partners with area ministries to take specific gift requests for the children of their most vulnerable families. Those gifts, along with 100 stockings being provided to the most abused and neglected children in the foster care system will be hand-delivered along with wrapping supplies for the caregivers. You will receive your delivery route prior to your arrival for pickup. Some families have requested holiday help such as wrapping, light cleaning or prayer. A coordinator will contact you to assess your availability.

This event is very family friendly and fun. Grab your favorite coffee, wear the elf hat, crank the carols and bring JOY. It's more than presents. It's a gift of hope and belonging.
