Dear Friend of COMPACT,

Christmas is so exciting for many children and youth! It is at Assemblies of God COMPACT Family Services. For some at Hillcrest Children’s Home and Highlands Maternity Home, it will be their very first Christmas experience.

I will never forget watching *Bria, with giant tears streaming down her face, see other girls in her cottage open Christmas gifts. I asked her if she was okay. She replied, “Yes. I’ve just never seen anything like this. I am so happy!” These types of responses occur every year. Children squealing when they find a bike with their name on it, a young lady with a vision of being an artist opening her first mega art set, a young boy’s broad smile as he puts on new headphones, or getting blue basketball shoes to match his uniform, or watching a little girl squeeze her first new doll.

Christmas is coming soon, and we would like to invite you to help us make this a joyful and life-changing season for some of God’s favorite people – abused, abandoned, neglected and forgotten children and youth currently in these redeeming ministries. For decades many friends and partners of Hillcrest and Highlands have provided amazing and impactful Christmas moments for thousands of children and youth. Can you help us do it again?

If you are able and would like to bring Christmas joy through presents to the children and youth at Hillcrest Children’s Home and Highlands Maternity Home, there are 3 wonderful ways you can participate:
