A Sparrow Christmas

Written by Melanie, a Redeemed Volunteer

A little over a month ago, I agreed to take on organizing Christmas gifts for 10 of our Sparrows and 2 interns.  Within 24 hrs of posting, every Sparrow and intern had been adopted!

The response was so great that others began to gather gift cards for them, and we have filled the car 3 times delivering them!  Watching the delight on their faces as we dropped the gifts off has made this one of the best Christmases ever for me.  There have been stunned expressions, excitement, and “nobody’s ever done that for me” from the Sparrows, and they are all a-twitter, trying to guess what’s in each package.

This picture shows only about HALF of the presents received.

Our goal is to expand this program to providing gifts for not only Christmas, but also for birthdays and other holidays throughout the year.  If you are interested in helping with this, please contact

If anyone still wishes to donate something for our Sparrows, we could really use Visa, Walmart and Home Depot gift cards.

These cards help to provide wants and needs for our Sparrows year round, and also help to pay for their coaster making supplies – allowing them to put more into their bank account.  Contact us at for more information, or go to to use a credit card to donate to the ministry (don’t forget, it’s tax deductible!).  

Thanks again, and Merry Christmas!
