Bonham, Texas -- Everyone is invited to attend the 9th annual Spirit of Giving Community Christmas Party on Saturday, November 18 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. The parking lot of First Presbyterian Church at the corner of 9th and Center Streets in Bonham will be filled with new and gently used items. Everyone who attends, regardless of age, will receive five tickets to “purchase” anything they want for FREE. Items large and small have a “cost” of one ticket.  No income limits are imposed, and no paperwork is required.

Many local churches and organizations have been collecting items all year for this special event.  Items available might include holiday decorations, furniture, diapers, toys, linens, household goods, kitchen baskets, new towels, socks, gloves, blankets, cleaning supplies and much more!   Drawings will be held for new bicycles; last year we gave away approximately 90 new bikes!

Volunteers pray before the 2022 Spirit of Giving begins.

Hot dogs and fixings will be provided by the K5 Fannin Radio Club.  Cookies, hot chocolate and water will also be available.

If this is something your church, organization or family would like to be a part of, mark your calendars and just show up on the morning of November 18th with your items, a table to put them on, your church or organization’s t-shirt and/or banner and a Spirit of Giving!
