Red Tub Day 2021
When Memphis Comes Together to Give Kids Christmas
One Donation, Two Gifts
For over 10 years, Red Tub Day has been a community celebration for children and foster families in the Memphis area. What started as a simple event to bring joy to kids, has become a community-driven party that not only gives gifts to kids but continuously supports therapeutic healing for high-need families.
When you share your donation of $250, you’ll support families in two ways: $125 goes towards filling a red tub with requested gifts for an individual child. The second $125 supports Memphis Family Connection Center which provides high-quality and low to no-cost health services for Memphis area families throughout the year.
What is Red Tub Day?
In 2010, we asked the Shelby County Department of Children Services: “What can we do for you?” And they said, “We have nearly 30 kids who need Christmas.” So we gathered up a bunch of Red Tubs, asked people to pitch in, and Red Tub Day was born!
Over the last 11 years, the Memphis Family Connection Center (MFCC) has provided over 4,500 Red Tubs to children at risk and in foster care. Every year 15 plus organizational sponsors and 12 partner churches work together to help make Red Tub Day a success.
Along with our partners at the White Station Church of Christ, we will host our annual Red Tub Day party on December 11th where we hand out the tubs to kids in foster care. This year the party will once again be a festive drive-thru celebration to keep families safe during the pandemic.
