Join the Yearly Christmas Toy DriveEach year we bless 7,000 children that really don’t have much to look forward to when it comes to Christmas. A present to open on Christmas morning can bring so much joy and help them not to feel forgotten. You can drop off your gift at Cityteam. Even better, maybe at your office Christmas party – you could ask everyone to bring a toy for a boy or girl. Just imagine how many children you could bless this Christmas in our community.

The Gift of New Life at Cityteam
Darnell came to us for help —Hungry and helpless, having hit the lowest point of his difficult life. His struggles started from day one.
Prematurely born to a drug-addicted mother, Darnell was only 5 when she gave him away to strangers who cared for him for several years. His other siblings were allowed to stay with his mother. Darnell felt abandoned.
Self-esteem issues made him a target of bullies. The school recommended giving Darnell drugs to deal with his Attention Deficit Disorder. Taking these prescription medications made him feel like he was in a “zombie-like state.” It was hard to think clearly or learn.
