Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry has for more than 40 years provided Christmas presents for families in crisis. There is always this need in every community and we are here to try and alleviate some of the hardships facing our neighbors and bring joy to this season of giving.
In 2017 Christmas Angel provided Christmas presents for over 600 children, all of which was made possible because of numerous toy drives and generous donations provided by so many businesses, churches and individuals in our community.
We were able to provide all of this through the Crisis Ministry and also help children at Steadfast House, Military Families Resource Center, Supportive Services for Veteran Families, and several schools in Buncombe County. In addition, we will always help our military families whose loved ones are deployed or who have just returned and are unable to find work.
These families need to keep providing for their basic necessities and not sacrifice these so their children can have a joyous Christmas morning. Our goal is to provide Christmas presents for all the children we know of who are living in need.
Christmas is the one season that giving joyfully is what we are called on to do!
