Gifts from the Heart Christmas Shop is a joint partnership program that understands families, including ones of very modest means, prefer to provide for themselves rather than accept a handout. Gifts From the Heart Christmas Shop offers a quality and affordable Christmas shopping opportunity to the parents of the children served by Neighbor Up Brevard, Club Esteem, Love In the Name of Christ, Family Promise of Brevard, Community of Hope, Eckerd Connects, New Life Mission and Women’s Center of Brevard. Because every family member deserves the joy that comes with the holiday season.

How to Give
Gifts from the Heart Christmas Shop needs the generous support of our community to stock the shelves with enough items to provide at least three (3) NEW gifts each to the over 900 children served by the eight (8) partner organizations.
There are a few ways to help:
Buy directly off our registry (2023 registry is in the works. Stay tuned)
Donate monetarily (all donations will go directly towards gifts for our community)
Buy gifts and bring them directly to Neighbor Up Brevard or Sorenson Moving & Storage (Melbourne location)
Each gift purchased is, in essence, two gifts – a gift for the child and the gift of joy and an affirmation of dignity for the parent.
Yet there is still one more gift – the joyful blessing donors to the program receive, knowing that they help not only to make Christmas possible for the children, but made affording Christmas possible for the parents! It is no wonder that the watchwords inspiring the Gifts From the Heart Christmas Shop come from the lips of Jesus himself who said “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35b, NIV).
