Families are as strong as their community. The Gift of Christmas is an opportunity to help support a community during this Advent season.

Kids in Community (KIC) is an after-school program offered in four communities in Toronto designed for kids in grades 1 to 6 to spend their time in a safe environment engaged in positive activities. We build relationships with the kids through songs, games, Bible time, and homework help. KIC is the first in a series of programs designed to build relationships and develop leaders who will serve their own communities.

We asked kids why they love KIC, this is what they told us:

The Gift of Christmas gathers families together for a meal and gives the opportunity to get to know other families in their community. Your gift will also send one kid to KIC for a month or the whole school year. This Christmas, as you spend time with friends and family, please consider a financial gift in partnership with Toronto City Mission to bring hope and transformation to kids throughout the year and for years to come.


Our goal is to raise $103,400 to send kids to KIC for the school year.

$140 one-time gift will send one kid to KIC for one month and give them the Gift of Christmas

$97.92 monthly gift will send one kid to KIC for one school year and give them the Gift of Christmas

Will you give the Gift of Christmas and give kids the opportunity to be transformed by God?

Please consider a financial gift in partnership with Toronto City Mission to gather families together for a meal, a time of friendship, and the opportunity for each child to continue participating in Kids in Community (KIC). KIC is an after-school program offered in four communities in Toronto designed for kids in grades 1 to 6 to spend their time in a safe environment engaged in positive activities. We build relationships with the kids through songs, games, Bible time, and homework help. Following KIC, Youth Extreme (YX) and Teens Leading Communities (TLC) teach kids the importance of being good role models and giving back to their communities.
