CI Gifts of Love

For more than 25 years, Gifts of Love has provided Christmas with dignity to thousands of need-qualified Lincoln families.

At City Impact, we believe in sharing the gospel, love, and kindness of Jesus Christ. The Christmas season is a financial burden for more than half of the people living in City Impact’s core neighborhoods. With families struggling to make ends meet, what better way to give the gift of love than by helping them celebrate Christmas and bring joy to hundreds of kids?

Our signature program, Gifts of Love, allows us to do just that as families and volunteers shop side-by-side in a gym filled with thousands of brand-new gift items in our onsite Christmas Store.

Through God’s provision and the efforts of many community partners and volunteers, hundreds of local families are given the chance to purchase new toys, household items, and electronics at a small fraction of the retail price – making gift-giving more affordable.
