Merry Christmas Gulf Coast is our annual Christmas outreach. Through active generosity, we’ll bring love and hope to those in our community who need it most.

How It Works:


In the past, we’ve given a bicycle to each family on a “first-come, first-serve” basis. This year, in addition to giving a bicycle to each family, we will also be able to give some other gifts, and enough food to feed their family for the entire holiday season.

We can provide all of this for a family for just $100.



Through our relationships with 41 schools throughout Baldwin and Mobile counties, we have been able to identify specific children and families who need our active generosity to make “Merry Christmas” a reality at home.

We’ll gather on December 5 at 13 different distribution sites throughout our community, to distribute the gifts.



Log into our Online Giving page, and click the “Give Now” button. Then, under the “Give To…” dropdown, select “MCGC 2015”.
