Red Ribbon Christmas 2021
Kokomo Rescue Mission’s Red Ribbon Christmas Outreach provided boxes of toys, gifts, food, and toiletries for individuals and families throughout the six-county area served by the Mission. Over 1600 individuals from 626 households received Red Ribbon Christmas boxes that were prayerfully filled.
Volunteers filled the boxes with gifts appropriate for the age and gender of each recipient. Each person received a new gift purchased by the Mission and extra gifts lovingly reconditioned by volunteers throughout the year.
When the boxes were filled with gifts, they were taken to the Christmas Warehouse where volunteers added paper products, personal care items, and other items to prepare them for delivery. Boxes were delivered or picked up on December 11 & 17 to homes with the help of volunteers.
In 2021, Red Ribbon Christmas boxes were filled with 17,000 new and gift ready items. Gift cards to purchase food were given out to every family. A special thanks to the We Care organization, which donated vital funds to make this outreach possible.
This event will once again be held in December. Check back for more information, location, registration dates, volunteer opportunities, and delivery dates.
Our Volunteers Rock!
Our core volunteers that work in our Christmas Warehouse all year are devoted in preparing all the gifts that are given out in our Red Ribbon Christmas Boxes. Our seasonal volunteers helped with organizing and delivering the gifts for our Red Ribbon Christmas!
We could not do this program without you!!!
