The final event is celebrated with a “wrapping party” to fill as many shoeboxes as possible with gifts for those in need. The Father McKenna Center’s mission is centered on “Meeting Needs… Reclaiming Lives” and supports over 100 guests each day through its Day Program, Hypothermia Program, Food Pantry, and Immersion Service Learning Program.
