The Christmas Season is a time for celebrating our Lord, Jesus Christ, showing love to those around us, and embracing a spirit of giving.
For many, the Christmas Season brings many financial worries. Mission Arlington®/Mission Metroplex® seeks to assist families during this time, particularly through our Christmas Store.
Two weeks before Christmas we open our doors for parents to shop through new toys for their children free of charge. Decorated festively, with an atmosphere of joy, the Christmas Store is truly a blessing for those who shop and volunteer.
