Providing gifts and Christmas cheer to hundreds of Kansas City families each year.

The Christmas Store will start on December 5th, 2021 and at this time we are expecting to hold it in its traditional format at Immanuel Lutheran. 



Be a part of someone's Christmas miracle! Church groups, individuals, and businesses donate new items such as coats, toys, clothing and blankets all year long to stock the Christmas Store shelves.  Visit our Amazon Wish List here:

We have updated the types of gifts that we will be accepting at the Christmas Store.  Please see below for changes:

  • Adult Clothing: Unisex sweatpants and sweatshirts, multipack of socks, multipacks of underwear/panties,  and multipacks of undershirts. We will no longer be offering items like jeans, sweaters, shirts, etc. 
  • Children's Clothing: We have an over supply of baby clothing. The Christmas Store team is asking for children's clothing only in sizes 2T-14/16. This is the only change to Children's Clothing. 
  • Teen Gift Cards: Gift cards should be from Walmart or Target and for the amount of $25. 

Most Urgently Needed Items:

  • COATS! (toddler through adults, male & female, new or gently used)
  • Blankets (king or queen only- no throws)
  • Boys Toys 
  • Unisex Adult Sweatpants and Sweatshirts

Look for sign-ups to be available in late fall.


Homemade cookies are a special part of the MLM Christmas Store. Each shopper receives a tin of cookies to share with their family. We need containers of 1 dozen, 2 dozen, and 3 dozen homemade cookies to serve our small, medium, and large families.
