We will be having a clothing drive for the Hope Rescue Mission. Last September, they opened a new center called The Lighthouse. This new building is designated specifically for women and children.
When we set up our Angel Tree after Thanksgiving, you’ll be able to pick a tag (or two?) to buy gifts for others not as fortunate as we are. For many years, through the Salvation Army’s Adopt-a-Family Program, Lincoln Park Church has helped (usually three) families, with gifts and more.
The tags on the tree are requests for items like winter clothes, boots, simple toys or crafts for children, and household items. Gift cards to Giant and Wal-Mart have also been purchased through your donations. Your generosity makes Christmas a bit better for those whose needs are so great.
