Many of us have fond memories of the holidays during our childhood, when we eagerly anticipated the new dolls, trucks, games, and outfits we would receive. But hundreds of parents in the west Twin Cities area struggle to make ends meet. Putting food on the table, keeping the lights on, paying the rent, and providing proper winter clothes are their challenges and priorities. There just isn’t any money left for presents at the holidays.
With our help and many other people in our community committed to being a blessing, PRISM’s Holiday Toy Shoppe puts a little magic into their holiday season, and makes a joyful, exciting holiday possible for over 800 kids and their families each year.
How Can I Get Involved?

The Holiday Toy Shoppe "Wish List"
Building bridges of faith through soccer in haiti
Join us as we partner with Reach Global in Haiti by donating much needed soccer equipment for kids soccer clubs. Our new partner, Reach Global coordinate soccer clubs for kids in need. Many of these kids come from families who can't afford to put food on the table or raise their children at home. The one thing these kids have in common is their love for soccer.
Through these soccer clubs, the Reach Global team has the opportunity to share the gospel and bring hope to these kids and their families. But they need our help. Soccer equipment is not readily available with some of these kids playing soccer in their bare feet. That's where we come in!
Build a bridge to Haiti
Clarity Church is collecting soccer equipment from April 21- May 23 in an effort to do good to those in need in Haiti.
WHAT TO DONATE
