Experience a joyful shopping experience, free of charge.

The MLM Christmas Store is one of the largest gift-giving programs in the Greater Kansas City area. The store provides over 1,000 families with a joyful and dignified Christmas experience.

This year’s Christmas store will be returning to its original format of families selecting their gifts with the help of our shopping elves.

Each family member should expect a coat, clothing, and a gift. Each household should expect a small kitchen appliance or a blanket / quilt, a gift card to help purchase their meal, cookies, and a Bible or devotional.


Applications will be online ONLY this year and will be open between September 6, 2022 – October 31, 2022 or when at max capacity (whichever comes first). Applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • Live within MLM’s service area
  • Not enrolled in another Christmas program such as the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund
  • Income at or below 150% of the federal poverty level:
    • 1-person household = $19,140 a year
    • 2-person household = $25,860 a year
    • 3-person household = $32,580 a year
    • 4-person household = $39,300 a year
    • 5-person household = $46,020 a year
