Christmas with Mercy 2019

Help spread the joy of giving this Christmas by volunteering at our Christmas with Mercy program. We are expecting to hand out toys to over 400 children this year. We need lots of help in order to make this possible! 

Historically, children volunteers younger than 10 years old do not enjoy this event.  Kids younger than 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult.  All volunteers must be able to attentively listen to instructions and accurately follow them.

*By participating in Christmas with Mercy, you give permission for House of Mercy to take video and photographs to utilize in future media and promotion. If you do not wish to have your photograph taken, please notify a staff member prior to the event and we will make arrangements. 

Location: Freedom Center 9100 Freedom Center Blvd Manassas, VA 20110
