Help Us Reach Our Goal of 4000 Christmas Shoebox Gifts For Christmas From The Heart

The Jones Real Estate Group is back at it again this year working with J-Jireh Ministries and The Christmas From the Heart Program.  We would love to have your help to reach our goal of 4000 Christmas Shoebox Gifts this year!

These gifts are delivered to over 50 childrens’ shelters and organizations in and around the San Antonio Area.  The Christmas From the Heart program is only one of the many programs that J-Jireh Ministries participates in to give back to children in need in the area and around San Antonio.    J-Jireh Ministries also participates in The Local Hero School Program, Computers with a Purpose, Anti-Graffiti Murals, The Fountain of Life Clean Water Program and Coming Soon, The Open Arms Children’s Shelter!  All of these awesome programs work to give these less fortunate children a better life.

Ways You Can Help

As you donate to the Christmas From the Heart Program, you provide these children a personal Christmas gift and help share what the true meaning of Christmas is. There are multiple ways to contribute to this cause.  You can donate small Christmas gifts for either a boy or girl that will fit in a shoebox, empty shoeboxes or plastic shoeboxes to fill & wrap and supplies to wrap  the shoeboxes like Christmas wrapping paper, tape and scissors.   All of these donations are so valuable and important for us to reach our goal.

If you would like more information about other ways you can help with The Christmas From The Heart Program please contact Greg Jones at (210) 389-1282 or gjones@phyllisbrowning.com.

Give With Us This Christmas Season With The Christmas From The Heart Program

Christmas is just around the corner and many people are already thinking of different ways they can help others this Christmas season.  The Jones Real Estate Group would like to invite each of you to give with us this Christmas Season with the Christmas From The Heart Program.

As many of you may be aware, Greg & Ann Jones have been involved with J-Jireh Ministries & the Christmas From The Heart Program for the last six years. This program works to gather, wrap, fill, and deliver shoeboxes filled with Christmas gifts to abused, battered and neglected children living in shelters in and around Bexar County.  These children are products of broken homes in every fashion you can imagine.   Christmas From The Heart’s  goal is to give them hope and point them towards a more productive life.

Last year the Christmas From The Heart Program delivered nearly three thousand shoebox gifts to children in 39 shelters all across our area. This year our goal is 4000 shoebox gifts and 50 shelters or organizations.  This year J-Jireh and Christmas From the Heart has been contacted by several additional organizations to supply hundreds of more Christmas Gifts for children in need!  The challenge has grown and we need your help  this year!

Below is information on How to Fill a Shoebox and the Christmas Shoebox Label to insert for the shoeboxes.  There are lots of simple and easy things that can fill a shoebox for example:  shampoos or small hygiene items, small gifts- like silly putty, play dough, inexpensive jewelry, caps, T- shirts, headbands,  scarves, etc.    It is not how much you spend on the items in the box, but your thoughts in filling the shoebox for the individual child.

Another way to help is by donating empty shoeboxes that can  be used to wrap gifts in.  A great (and easier) alternative to empty shoeboxes that can be used instead of the shoeboxes is plastic shoeboxes with lids that can be lined with red or green tissue paper.  These boxes can be bought at The Dollar Store or…. $1.00!  You can also DONATE monitarily to J-Jireh Ministries and The Christmas From The Heart Program.

Filled Shoeboxes, empty shoeboxes or gifts for the shoeboxes can be dropped off at ANY Phyllis Browning Company Office.
