The Christmas Store allows low-income families the opportunity to provide Christmas presents for their children at a price they can afford. (Parents who shop at the store are required to pre-register through their church.)

Beginning December 10, we transform a church into “The Christmas Store”, where parents can shop and select the gifts for their children at a very low price. Gifts and toys are provided through generous donations from churches, companies, organizations, and individuals.

In preparation of opening our new youth program, Little Village, in the spring in Westwood, men in our addiction recovery program are showing great character by helping out painting on weekends. Rooms, ceilings, & hallways are now warm & vibrant. When someone said they had faith in one of the men to do a good job, he got really serious & said, "Nobody's had faith in me in 22 years. That means a lot. It feels so good to be doing something good." The families & children who will play & learn in this space will be blessed by the hard work of these men, led by Jesse, Frank, Joe & others. www.citygospelmission.org/little-village ...

Wow, thank you for all the love. That positive reinforcement means the world to these men. We also want to mention that this venture is a partnership with Cincinnati Urban Promise at their location in Westwood. CUP also has a goal of fighting generational poverty, and we can't wait to align our missions to help families and children.

Hi Norm. Wow, that's quite a ride that your group is going on. I will let our Tour de Falls leaders know about it and your invitation.

On this national day of remembrance for Martin Luther King Jr., his messages of respect, service, faithfulness, love and understanding are timeless. Life can be hard enough without anger and division. Let the content of your character be a unifying light to others always and in all ways.
