For Another Successful Christmas Joy!
Every year, the kindness of our community of friends and donors inspires us at Mision Peniel to continue brightening children´s Christmas with a gift. Thanks to your generosity, our Christmas Joy party was full of laughter, excitement, and joy!
This year, more than 275 families and 738 children walked away with a special holiday gift and a bag full of goodies to enjoy. The kids even received a visit from Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus. Once again, it made a big difference in the lives of these children and their families.
Thank you to all the churches that donated their time and toys to host an Angel Tree. Thank you to all the churches or individuals who donated monetarily. Thank you to everyone who donated through our Walmart Wish List. Thank you to our volunteers who helped us organize, sort, and prepare gift bags for our Christmas Joy Celebration. We couldn’t have gotten so many toys out to so many families in need without you!
Thank you again for helping bring a smile to a child’s face this Christmas, and for all that you do to support us all year long. At Misión Peniel we wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Thank you for Making our Backpack/School
Supplies-Drive a Success!
Thanks to all the generous donors who contributed, and all the amazing volunteers who sorted, packed, and distributed the backpacks.
Our goal was to fill 500 backpacks with everything kids need to start the year off - pens, pencils, crayons, composition books, spiral notebooks, and more. But your support was so overwhelming that we were able to distribute backpacks to 550 children of 182 families.
YES, 550 - children whose school year is off to a better start because of YOU!
A huge to everyone who made this possible

Good news! We are signing up church and other small groups for Friday serving!

N E E D L I S T!!!
Any items you can provide to meet our ongoing needs are greatly appreciated. Just click on the link below to see how you can help!
We have decided to suspend distribution of clothing until further notice. We will accept baseball caps and in the winter months, jackets and blankets. We also accept any type of rain gear: ponchos, umbrellas and light rain jackets.
Due to a limited amount of storage, we ask that if you have things like pots, pans, basic dishes, sheets, pillows, bicycles, or portable sleeping tents that you contact the mission first to confirm there is a need.
If you have a delivery of these items, please contact us by phone, text or email ahead of time as our schedule on site has limited hours. We cannot accept donations on Fridays unless your group is serving that day. Thank you for understanding.
