Volunteer Opportunities in the Store

Coming by yourself, with your family, or a few friends?  You don’t need an appointment. Please just show up, and we’ll get you to work.  Coming with your group or team?  Give us a call at 817-277-6620, and we’ll get you on our schedule. Please note: we are kid-friendly. We love it when your children come with you. There are plenty of age-appropriate tasks for them to do.

  1. Stock Room – receive, organize, and place Christmas gifts & toys;
  2. Shopper Helper – help moms & dads find gifts for their children;
  3. Childcare – help us care for children, while parents are shopping in our store;
  4. Gift Wrap – wrap the gifts people have chosen for their children;
  5. Much More – there will be plenty of ways to serve while in the store.

Christmas Gifts / Toys are needed

For children up through age 17. Wrapping paper, gift wrap, and ribbons, and tape are helpful gifts too. Here are a few ways you can get gifts to the children who will be receiving them:

  1. Click on this LINK for Christmas gift ideas, then bring those gifts to the Mission Offices anytime up through Christmas Eve.
  2. Purchase through our Amazon Wish List to have the gifts delivered. Click HERE.
  3. Online Giving: Give directly to us online, through our secure Website. Under the option for “funds,” select “Christmas,” and we’ll use the money to provide Christmas gifts;
  4. Provide a Bike for children & youth – by bringing the bike directly to us, or by providing funds online for the purchase of a bike. Select the fund “Bikes for Mission Arlington” when you give.

Your Prayer Support

As you give and volunteer, we do have one more request. Please keep this Christmas season with Mission Arlington in your prayers. It isn’t just a prayer request for enough toys or volunteers, but that God would be glorified in us and through our work, and that people would experience God’s love as they receive these gifts.  We will be telling the story of Luke chapter 2 to everyone who will be coming through the Christmas Store. Please pray that God will use the story, and all of the Christmas Season, to bring people to Him.
