It’s time for the Angel Tree Project. The Salvation Army has matched us with two families in need, and we’ll collect gifts and money to give them a joyful Christmas. Click on the link in this post to sign up.
Our Salvation Army Adopt-A-Family Angel Tree will be up the Sunday after Thanksgiving – November 25. Gifts will be collected up to Sunday, December 16. We plan to assist two-three families, totaling around 10 folks.
The Missions Committee and Salvation Army want to thank our church family for their response to the Angel Tree last year. We helped two families, totaling nine individuals. One family was a widowed mother with three boys, living with her mother. The other was a newly single mother with three girls, one of whom had taken a job to help with bills. Gift requests were daily needs items like winter clothing, boots, simple toys or crafts for children, household items. All items placed on the tree were taken by generous folks who wanted to help make the season a little better for those whose needs are great. In addition, individuals who made donations for gift cards to Giant and Wal-Mart allowed these folk to make some choices of their own.
