Home for the Holidays

The most meaningful holiday gifts in Memphis.

Shop local and join the holiday tradition of giving gifts that help seniors and families with basic needs to stay in their homes. These gifts sustain MIFA’s vital mission of supporting the independence of vulnerable seniors and families in crisis through high-impact programs.

Browse our catalog options below – give, donate, volunteer.


Honor your friends, family, or business associates with a gift that supports our most vulnerable neighbors.

Choose from the options below or call (901) 529-4502.

Many companies match charitable gifts from their employees, which could double or triple the impact of your giving. Please ask your employer about matching gifts.

$35 represents a week of hot meals for a senior

$75 represents a night in a shelter for a family in need

$175 represents critical utility assistance

$240 represents six weeks of Senior Companion service to vulnerable seniors in the community

MIFA Holiday Cards
Memorable and unique

Send us a list of those you wish to honor, and we’ll take care of the rest. Our volunteers will handwrite your personal message, address each card, and drop them in the mail. Participate in Memphis’ original nonprofit holiday card program.

This year’s card art (pictured) is designed by Memphis artist Leslie Barron.
