What is the Christmas Mall?

The Christmas Mall provides a free shopping experience for families in our community who need an extra hand around the holiday season. Parents and/or guardians arrive at Journey Church and are given the opportunity to choose presents for each kid in their household. Each child receives a main gift and a stocking, and each family goes away with a board game. Our volunteers are here to help each adult shopper throughout their shopping experience by keeping everything organized, wrapping each gift, and loading the presents into their vehicle.

How to Participate

Corporate Sponsorships

Each year we rely on the valuable support from our local community. Information about this year's corporate sponsorships for local businesses and groups will open up this fall. We look forward to partnering with you in another great year of this amazing community outreach.


Volunteer signups will go live later this fall. Check back here or on our events page in early October for the volunteer registration link.


This event relies heavily on not only monetary donations but toy and gift donations as well. However, only donations of BRAND NEW toys and gifts will be accepted. Purchased items can be brought to the church during normal business hours or purchased through our Amazon Wish list which is live all year long and any purchases made can be sent directly to the church.

Shopper Registration

Families interested in participating in this event will need to register ahead of time and registrations for the 2023 Mall will become available in early October. This registration form helps us prepare the age-appropriate gifts we offer. Adult shoppers will be scheduled for a time to shop and will be notified via email the week leading up to the event in December.

Parent and/or Guardian Testimonies

You have helped my children receive gifts we never could have gotten them. You have made their Christmas, just like last year. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

I absolutely LOVE this event! I am a single mom of three living in a hotel working a full-time job and trying to make ends meet. This has helped me be able to have something for my girls.

This [event] helped us tremendously. This last year has been rough financially for us and we can't thank you enough.
