Every year multiple churches, organizations, and business help us collect toys for children and our toy drive. If you are able and willing our team can help you with all promotional material to collect toys. We will give you our targeted age range and list of toys that we've learned are most helpful. Contact us at outreach@elevatepeople.tv


We turn Bruce Elementary into a large shopping mall for parents. They drop their kids off in child care and shop for a toy. Then a gift wrapping team wraps if for them to take home and put under the tree. We need multiple volunteers helping us host each family, wrap presents, and watch kids. This is by far one of our greatest highlights with Hope for Christmas. 




We are excited to be collecting blankets for our homeless friend under the bridge. We will also be serving hot coco and water. There will be Christmas music, a message of hope, prayer, and many great conversations. This is a great serve event for the whole family.


Partnering with the Houston Food Bank is one of our favorite things to do. We will have a team preparing meals for families in need this Holiday  season. This is a great serve events for young children and families to serve.
