Providing a memorable holiday since Christmas Eve 1997

Angelic Christmas crusade has been helping homeless men, women, and children in the downtown Dallas area have a memorable holiday since Christmas Eve 1997. Originally known as the “Homey Syndicate”, a reference to the “homey atmosphere” being provided to 13 homeless souls at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Dallas, Tx, the organization was started by Mark Pfeifer. Since 2008 they have been providing homeless individuals with a Free Golden Corral Buffet, a tour of Christmas Lights and a Christmas eve church service at the Cathedral of Guadalupe in downtown Dallas.
Since inception, Angelic Christmas Crusade has helped an average of 125 individuals yearly, mostly funded by Mark Pfeifer himself.
The inspiration for this program emerged in 1994 after Mark Pfeifer, the organizer of these events, found himself seriously ill for more than 9 months. His battle with illness forced him to reflect on his life and what he was doing for his fellow human. At that time, he made a promise to G-d that, should he ever be healed, he would find a way to do honorable charitable work to help others.
Within a week of his promise and prayer, he found himself healed and it would be another 20 years before he needed to visit a doctor again. After what Mark considers a divine healing, he would not forget the promise he made, and, after some research he started this charitable cause.
The organization initially worked with local hotels and paid discounted prices for vacant rooms on Christmas Eve in order to house local homeless families and provide them with a Christmas they would never forget.
Unfortunately because of financial hardships, the Homey Syndicate was unable to continue offering the hotel experience. Another organization that was at the time better funded took over the rooming aspect.
Rather than bring Mark Pfeifer’s program to a halt, out of this difficult time, the Angelic Christmas Crusade was born. While one organization provides lodging, Angelic Christmas Crusade provides a buffet meal at Golden Corral, a Christmas lights tour, and the church service that all come together to help these individuals who might otherwise feel hopeless, have the most magical holiday experience possible.
Angelic Christmas Crusade receives a discounted price of $10 per person at the Golden Corral restaurant buffet. Your donation will help Angelic Christmas Crusade continue to provide the meals, memories, and Christmas mass to all these struggling souls.
Please help make a Dallas homeless person’s Christmas Miracle come true.
