Affordable Christmas – Giving Gifts – Giving Value

Affordable Christmas – Full Information Flyer & Shopping List

How It Works:

  • Affordable Christmas empowers low-income families with the opportunity to purchase gifts at an affordable cost. This allows parents to provide gifts for their children while maintaining their dignity.
  • We collect new toys which we then price at roughly 1/10th of the original retail value.
  • Approximately 60 families will be screened and invited to participate by our partnering Desoto County schools; Hope Sullivan Elementary, Southaven Elementary, and Greenbrook Elementary.


  • You may drop items at Trinity by December 2, 2016, or schedule a pickup.
  • Donated gift distribution will be on December 10, 2016 from 9am – 1pm.

How You Can Help:


  • New, unused toys and gifts (see information flyer for full shopping list)
  • Monetary gifts that will be used to purchase gifts.
  • Host a toy drive at your workplace, church, community organization, etc.
  • * Note: No single donated gift should be more than $20-$30 in value as the goal is to provide a maximum number of families with opportunities for reasonable items rather than providing larger items for only 1-2 families.


  • Shopping assistants.
  • Set up team.
  • Toy drive team.
  • * Contact Pastor Jeff Summers (, 662-349-3333) for additional volunteer opportunities and scheduling.
