Red Ribbon Christmas
Kokomo Rescue Mission’s Red Ribbon Christmas Outreach provides boxes of toys, gifts, food, and toiletries for individuals and families throughout the six-county area served by the Mission.
Volunteers fill the boxes with gifts appropriate for the age and gender of each recipient. Each person receives a new gift purchased by the Mission and extra gifts lovingly reconditioned by volunteers throughout the year.
When the box has been filled with gifts, it is taken to a Christmas Warehouse where volunteers wrap the gifts. Boxes are also delivered to homes by volunteers.
In 2019, Red Ribbon Christmas boxes were delivered to 1,470 people, including 570 families. A special thanks to the We Care organization, which donated $105,000 in 2019 to help make this outreach possible.
