Orchard Tupelo Holiday Help

As we approach the holiday season, there are many ways to serve our community and meet the needs of our region. Below you will find multiple ways to currently serve. As needs arise they will be added to this page.

Sponsor a Child

Each year we sponsor children through LIFECORE, local organizations, and individual families who need help during Christmas. Whether as an individual or a small group, you can be a part of sponsoring a child's Christmas. Simply complete the form below and someone from our team will be in contact with you as soon as possible. 

Teacher Gifts

We want to say Thank You to the teachers at Tupelo High School. Our goal is to collect 160 $5 gift cards from coffee shops in town as a small gift of appreciation this Christmas. Feel free to include a handwritten thank you note with your gift card. These can be dropped off on Sunday mornings in the foyer or by The Orchard Offices during the week. 

St. Luke Food Pantry

At The Orchard, we believe in coming alongside nonprofits who are already doing incredible work in our region - like the St. Luke Food Pantry. The St. Luke Food Pantry can not function without its 20-25 volunteer workforce who serves guests each Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until noon 50 weeks a year. 

Compassion International

Salvation Army Bell Ringing

The Salvation Army is looking to increase the amount of volunteer participation with the Red Kettle Campaign. The money raised goes to support their daily operation at the Shelter, Soup Kitchen, and Social Services Program throughout the year. Get a group together and share the shift to help those in need. All ringers will need to wear a mask per store policies.

Community Volunteer Opportunities

In addition to specific ways to serve, The Mississippi Commission for Volunteer Service has created a Hub for all non-profit volunteer needs in our community and region. Many of our local mission partners are listed as a part of this opportunity finder.

To reach people no one else is reaching, we must do the things no one else is doing.
