Giving Back!

Christmas in the ParkGiving back – pdf Letter

Thursday, December 25th at 8am

This special outreach will bring hope and joy to many. We will be serving breakfast in the Sunny Slope area and providing small gifts and warm clothes for the homeless men, women, and children who would otherwise be forgotten.

We will be serving breakfast at Mt. View Park (7th Ave s/o Peoria) on Christmas morning. We will meet at the park at 7:00am for set up, food preparation at 7:30am and then begin serving breakfast at 8:00am. Volunteers are needed with Set Up, Cooking, Serving and Clean Up.

It helps to know how many helping hands to expect, so if you can please call

Jackson Ritter 623-879-2832 or

Drop off donations to 14446 N. 184th Ave. Surprise, AZ 85388 or call to schedule a pick up.

Christmas is especially hard on people who find themselves living in a homeless shelter or on the streets. They often remember better times in years past and, wondering if they will ever get out of the hole they seem to have fallen into.

People who are more fortunate can make all the difference in the world to those people who feel as though the world has forgotten them, by the simple act of a small gift at Christmas.

Urban outreach has been working with several homeless in the SunnySlope Area, so there are several opportunities for those in our community to help. I have listed the following items that will help keep them warm and comfortable in the upcoming cold months.

We will be filling 100 gift boxes with the items below to hand out Christmas morning. If you feel led to donate, these are the items that will be needed to fill one box.

Items Needed: (expecting about 100 people to cloth)                                                     

Jackets (Mens, Ladies, Childrens)

Sleeping bags or blankets

Jeans (Mens, Ladies, Childrens)
