Every Christmas season, New City welcomes under-resourced families from our partnered organizations into our church for a one-day discounted shopping experience. We provide high-quality gifts at an extremely affordable price that are wrapped on site, as well as a kid’s zone for children (to maintain gift secrecy!). We strive to bless these families with a joyful Christmas shopping experience and give them the opportunity to provide impressive gifts their children want, while eliminating financial stress. Our church community can contribute to this event by donating the gifts for families in need or donating time to serve during the event.



We are collecting new gift donations in our lobby from November 13 to December 5. Please bring unwrapped items appropriate for ages birth to 18 years, such as:

  • Toys
  • Books
  • Legos
  • Dolls
  • Games
  • Electronics
  • Make up and jewelry
  • Bikes and scooters
  • $20 Gift cards to places like Target or Walmart

*NO clothing, socks, or shoes please!

Unable to bring gifts in person? Order from Amazon using the link below and have them shipped to New City Church!

New City Church

Phoenix, AZ 85004


The gifts we collect will be used at a special Christmas Boutique at Hope Women’s Center, as well as at our Affordable Christmas event. All women are invited to serve with us at the Hope Women’s Center Christmas Boutique on Tuesday, December 6. We’ll help them create a joyful Christmas shopping experience for under-resourced women and their families. We need volunteers to be personal shoppers, wrap gifts, and restock their boutique. You can choose between two shifts: 8:45 am – 11:30 am or 11:15 am – 2:30 pm. Childcare will be available for both shifts.
