Holiday Ministry

OneCompassion's vision is that no family in Johnston County goes without a Christmas. Through our Holiday Ministry, we want families to experience the joy of giving and receiving grace and compassion just as we have. For this reason, we enable parents to bless their own families with a decorated home, Christmas gifts, and food for a Christmas meal and the holiday break.

Sponsor a Family

Full Sponsor - A full sponsor commits to not only fully financially sponsoring and shopping for their family, but also delivering the holiday packages on delivery day! Full sponsors will introduce themselves to their sponsor family upon being matched, and communicate with them in regards to delivery day and time.

Financial Sponsor- For a less intensive option, a financial sponsor is only involved financially. Individuals who do not wish to be a part of the shopping and delivery process can choose to financially sponsor a family, leaving the rest of the responsibility to the OneCompassion team.
