A Hometown Mission, Inc.: Helping Families in Need is a charitable organization that was formed in 2008. We began as A Hometown Christmas, but due to expansion and the need to assist families throughout the year we made the decision to change the name and scope of the organization. However, we don’t want to forget where we started and the heart of our organization.
For many, the Christmas season is an exciting time filled with traditions and memories accumulated over the years. These may include family get-togethers, a candlelight worship service or the sparkle in a child's eye at the first sight of the decorated Christmas tree. It may be the excitement of wrapping presents, putting them in that "secret place" or writing a letter to Santa.
Sadly, many people in our own hometown do not get to experience Christmas the way we do. For them, loss of jobs, income and other family struggles bring a very different Christmas experience.
A Hometown Mission, Inc. began as a way to share these traditions and sentimental memories to family’s right here in our own community; perhaps even someone right across the street…in our own hometown. As we sat around our own dinner table we contemplated how to share what we have with those around us. The idea of A Hometown Mission, Inc. was formed.
In our first year we supplied Christmas gifts, food baskets, clothing, blankets, heaters and Bibles to over 100 families and 250 children in the McLennan county area.
With the help of several churches, Sunday school classes, life groups and many individual contributors we were able to share the joy of the holiday season to our hometown.
We are simply asking you to consider being a part of A Hometown Mission, Inc. 2009. If you or someone you know might want to adopt a family or participate in gift wrapping or distribution of gifts, please contact us. Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated and will further the cause of spreading joy to others this holiday season.
To God Be the Glory for Whom All Things Are Possible!
