Christmas Project 2015



Once again we will help needy families with gifts for their children and food for their larders.


December 27 Update:


 19 families with 43 children

We gave: 98 gifts, including toys and clothes;

wrapping paper, bows, & tape.


Each family also received a box of books and

turkey, ham, & sausage;

canned green beans, peas, corn, mustard greens, sweet potatoes,

& cranberry sauce;

gravy, stuffing mix, rice,

 macaroni & cheese; eggs, margarine, milk, & apple juice;

bread & dinner rolls;

apples, oranges, onions, potatoes, & carrots;

and a pumpkin pie.

If needed, they also received baby food and diapers.


Many thanks to everyone for their generous contributions!



Dates to keep in mind…

Nov. 22 & 29:  cards available with a request for something each child needs and something they want.  Please pick up a card (or two!) in the Lounge.


Dec 13:  Gift ingathering.  Please return all gifts (unwrapped), as we will have a special blessing for the children who will enjoy them.


Dec 21:  Food shopping, sorting, and delivery.  


There will be a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board for those able to help on Dec. 21.  If you have any questions, contact Carol Nancarrow.  Wear your comfy shopping shoes & get ready to shop at Meijer for our families.  Then head back & help sort everything we bought.  If you can stay a bit longer & help deliver all these goodies, please let Carol know.  We can use lots of vehicles!
