Look for the GIVING TREE in the lobby of the church the weekends of November 18-19, November 25-26 and December 2-3.
Please consider taking an ornament or two and return the gift (UNWRAPPED) listed on the ornament by the weekend of December 9-10.
The gifts will be taken to Circle of Concern for their Christmas gift program for their families.
Circle of Concern is located in Valley Park. It is a food pantry and provides assistance to families in the area.
The Christmas gift program provides toys and gifts to children up to age 11. This includes age-appropriate gifts, toys, hats and gloves, socks, etc.
If you have never shopped at the store “Five Below”, it is a great place to buy fun things. Everything there is $5 or less! If you have children or grandchildren, just think what they might like for Christmas and buy an extra one for the Giving Tree.
There will be envelopes on the tree for gift cards and cash donations. Some suggestions for gift cards are Kohl’s, Old Navy, Target, Marshalls, Walgreens and Walmart. Please limit the gift card amounts to less than $25 each. Don’t forget to purchase the gift cards through our SCRIP program!
