Christmas Donations 2017

Christmas Donations 2017

During the Advent and Christmas season, we are often moved to give to those who may have very little during this season. Several options are available.

For our Project Grace Guests

For the last few years we have provided cards in order for Wed night guests to choose one or two to send out to their family. We have cards left over from last year, but are in need of stamps. If you are able to help, just bring your donation of stamps to church on Sunday and give to Kathleen M. or Dee B.

We would also love to continue the tradition of giving gifts out to our guests. This year that will be on Wed, Dec. 20. The favorite gifts are NEW socks, new or gently used and clean hats, scarves, gloves, jackets, basically warm clothes. We also give out toiletries which we try to keep on hand all year. The most requested toiletries are disposable razors, deodorant, small packs / individually wrapped feminine hygiene products (which we save for when ladies ask for them). However all unused travel size items are useful. The youth will have a box out to collect donations in the church Narthex. Please help us give others a cozy Christmas. For more information or clarification, please contact the church office.

You can also support Project Grace any time in your online shopping using AmazonSmile, where 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products will be donated to the charitable organization of your choice. Use the button below to support our non-profit partner, Shoreline Community Services.
