Help Families in Need this Christmas Season

We have seen a substantial increase of families needing assistance due to COVID, and we anticipate the holidays looking a little different this year. You can give the gift of hope this holiday season by adopting a family for our Hope-Filled Christmas gift distribution, hosting a toy drive, shopping via our amazon wish list, or simply dropping off toys during our pantry hours. Click one of the options below to make a child's Christmas bright this year. 

For questions on how you can help a family this Christmas season, please contact Renae by email at Renae@HeartlandHopeMission.org or by phone at 402.733-1904 x11. 


Adopt - A - Family This Christmas by Shopping

You can bring hope to a family this holiday by adopting a family!  Simply register here to let us know the size of family you would like to shop for.  We estimate it will cost about $50 per child to purchase gifts, stocking stuffers and a needed item. Once we receive your registration, we will e-mail you with the details about the child’s age, clothing size, gift suggestions and general likes.  

Once you are done shopping for the family, you can drop toys off to Heartland Hope Mission and we will distribute the toys along with a holiday pantry to the family you adopted.  The last day to drop off toys is Tuesday, December 8th.
