Giving Joy is a part of the Journey’s 2C Ministries to extend Compassion & Care to parents who otherwise might not be able to provide Christmas gifts for their children by hosting a free "shopping" experience and free gift wrapping. This provides parents with the gift of dignity to present the Christmas gifts they selected and wrapped for their children, from themselves, as the parent on Christmas morning. We also provide prayer for the parents and offer them the opportunity to receive the greatest gift of all, SALVATION, after their shopping experience to find ultimate joy.
