Helping Our Neighbors Through the Angel Tree

If you would like to participate in the Angel Tree this year, please pick out a stocking located in the Narthex.  Each stocking has the name of a child, age, and gift ideas.  We received these names from the Department of Human Services.  The families were selected if the family qualifies as low income and receives assistance from the Department of social services.   The family filled out a wish list. The items listed are only suggestions so don’t feel compelled to follow the list.  We have color coded the list in family groups so you know which children live in the same household.  Write your name and phone number on the master list next to your child’s name. The number by the name matches the number on the stocking.  Go shopping.  Spend at least $25 on the gift(s).  Your gifts do not need to fit into the stocking, but all gifts must be together.  If you have more than one gift, please place the gifts in a bag or a box.  Make sure your child’s name is clearly marked on the gift.  Do not write your name on the gifts.  They are given anonymously.  Please bring your gifts to the church no later than December 16th.  When you return the gift, please take the angel ornament with your child’s name on it. If you have any questions, please speak with Diane Hay.            –2018
