Each year, through our Christmas programming, we assist over 1,000 families registered in our food program with toys and other meaningful gifts. Children ages 12 and under receive toys and gifts and teens 13-18 years of age receive a Christmas stocking full of toiletries, gift cards and other items.

As you plan your holiday shopping, we invite you to consider donating new or gently used toys towards our Christmas Kids Shop. You may also sponsor a particular age group by contacting our office at 740.282.8010 or emailing Cynthia Lytle at

To make it even easier, we have an Amazon Wish List page with particular gift ideas that can be purchased and mailed directly to the Urban Mission.

We are also collecting or items such as  shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes, lotion, body wash, hair brush/combs, razors, shaving cream, mini-grooming kits, bubble baths, make-up/brushes, nail polish/manicure kits, jewelry, snacks & candy, gift cards, etc.  All items can be dropped off at 423 North Street from now until December.
