The Christmas Gift event is our vehicle for combating spiritual and economic poverty. It is an annual birthday celebration for Jesus honoring the homeless and impoverished at the Dallas Convention Center. The event is held in December each year and draws thousands to a central location allowing Operation Care to connect our guests to our advocate partners on a large and efficient scale that will help them escape homelessness and poverty.
Attention Volunteers: Please park in Parking Lot E at the convention center. Parking is free and signs will lead you into the building for check-in.
