Gifts For All God’s Children’s mission is to meet needs and share the love of Christ with at-risk children in southeast Michigan. They accomplish that by connecting children with churches and community organizations, giving gifts, and planning events.


All year long, Gifts For All God’s Children helps urban churches and ministries connect to neighborhood children and their families. Every program, event, and resource is an opportunity to engage in the community.

Programs include individualized tutoring/ mentoring, summer Bible camps, overnight camp scholarships, field trips, transportation to sports camps, the Connecting Kids to Christ (CKC) Center, and prayer partners for the children.

Events are held at Valentine’s Day, Easter, in the summer and fall, and at Christmas.

The organization provides children with Christmas gifts, school supplies, and Easter baskets. Since 1988, more than 61,000 at-risk children in Detroit, Pontiac, and Flint have received gifts provided by Gifts For All God’s Children’s many volunteers and donors.
