Spreading the joy of the holidays to hundreds of local children!

The annual MAM Christmas Share Program spreads the joy of the holidays by providing toys, gift cards, and warm blankets to hundreds of children in the area. Their families struggle to provide food and basic necessities for their children, often without enough leftover for rent and utilities.

How the Christmas Share Program works:​

Your Toy Donations + Parents Shopping = Holiday Joy for Children!

MAM collects donations of new toys, blankets and gift cards to stock our stores, called The North Pole and The South Pole.

Toy Shop

Families are invited to "shop" for their children during a scheduled time. Volunteer "Elves" are on-hand to help parents make selections.

Christmas Tree Decorating

Parents get to surprise their children with gifts specially selected for them! Teens are given a fun $50 gift card! And each child gets a warm blanket too!
