Alternative Christmas Gifts

10-15-present

Virginia Mennonite Missions is pleased to again offer the Alternative Christmas Gifts for giving this 2016 holiday season.

Since 2010, giving to these projects has provided more than $25,000.

We are so grateful for the individuals, families, Sunday School classes, small groups and congregations who have chosen to give towards these projects to make a difference in communities around the world.

As you go about your holiday preparations, whether as a family or congregation, please consider these mission alternatives to the frenzied consumerism of Christmas.
 
By clicking on the gift options below, you will be redirected to a form to specify your gift, and by clicking “Submit” you will be transferred to a PayPal page. You may make an online donation. If you prefer, you may instead send a check made out to Virginia Mennonite Missions (601 Parkwood Drive, Harrisonburg, VA 22802) with the project designated in the memo line.
