Current Appeal

I received a call the other day from a pastor who was inquiring about the possible placement of four children, ages eight through ten. Their mother passed away on Mother’s Day, and the father is unable to take care of the children.

We were recently contacted regarding the desperate need to place another sibling group of five children, ages two through nine. The father is in prison and the mother is nowhere to be found.

The judge involved in this case has given the relatives 30 days to find a suitable placement for these children, or they will likely be placed in the state foster program, which means that they would likely be separated from one another.With your help, we can keep these children together where they can grow and develop in the same nurturing environment and enjoy the same opportunity for reaching their potential.

As I write this annual “Christmas in July” letter to you, let us be reminded of why Jesus came: “For God so loved the world that he gave…” (John 3:16).

Loving and giving is what the true spirit of Christmas is all about, and it’s not just something that we celebrate once a year in December but throughout the entire year—even in July.

We began our Christmas In July Appeal many years ago out of the desperate need for funding during the summer months when our income is typically at its lowest.

During November and December, we are blessed with the generous support that is ushered in during this special season of giving. In fact, most income to TCM is received during these last two months of the year. Our sponsors are willing to purchase toys and clothing for the children, for which we are very grateful.

However, as all of us know, the needs of these children—as with all children—are year round.

Will you help us today with a special one-time gift to our Christmas in July campaign?

Your donation will enable us to continue to care for children like Matthew and Rachel, as well as other sibling groups that desperately need to come to the Mansion.

Please don’t wait. Your help is urgently needed now!

Whatever you can give will be appreciated very much and will help to defray the summertime expenses of caring for the children.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for standing with us in this, the Lord’s work!

Sincerely on behalf of the children,

Stephen Judd
President and CEO

P.S. Your special Christmas in July offering, regardless of the amount, will make a big difference in the continuance of this vital ministry, especially at this time. Again, thank you!

**Matthew and Rachel are not the children’s real names, nor are they pictured**
