Christmas for the Children
& Christmas Food Boxes

Our goal at Of One Accord Ministry is to ensure that no child in Hawkins County goes without Christmas. We accept applications for Christmas for the Children from October 1st through November 15th each year. Once the application is screened for eligibility, then our staff works with area churches, businesses and agencies to provide Christmas presents for each child, along with a holiday party that presents the true meaning of Christmas – the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Applications can be obtained at one of the following locations:

  • Shepherd’s Center in Rogersville
  • Department of Human Services in Rogersville
  • Health Department in Rogersville
  • Emergency Services Food Pantry in Church Hill
  • Health Department in Church Hill
