Please note: Mission for Area People will not be giving out backpacks this year. So many other sites are available to students to receive school supplies that Mission for Area People wants to provide a different service to benefit students.

Mission for Area People has changed our Christmas focus this year. We are having a “TEEN TOWN CHRISTMAS GIVE AWAY”. Our focus will be on teenagers 15 to 18.  Other agencies assist younger children, but it is the teenagers who often are forgotten. Please help us make a memorable Christmas for area teens.

Suggested Items needed:

  • Lounging PJ Bottoms
  • Hoodies (college)
  • Watches
  • Fast Food Gift Cards
  • Wallets
  • Purses
  • Alarm Clocks
  • iPhone Gift Cards
  • Colognes & Body Washes

Items may be dropped off any time between 9:00 a.m. & 4:00 p.m., Monday –Friday at the MAP Office, 2500 Jefferson Street, Muskegon Heights.

You may also make a monetary donation to Teen Town Christmas and MAP will purchase items for the program. Thank you!
