When we think of Thanksgiving and Christmas, we generally think of family, food, and the sharing of gifts. This holiday season, you can help our less fortunate neighbors have holidays with those same things. Our Community Action Team has several ways you can do this:
- by filling a bag of food, donating a turkey, or donating by cash or check to provide families with a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Bags and envelopes will be distributed on Oct. 30 for Thanksgiving and on Nov. 27 for Christmas.
- by taking a tag from the Saint Nicholas table and purchasing a gift for someone in need – child, family, or senior citizen. The table with tags will be located in the hallway across from the office beginning Nov. 20. Please plan to bring your unwrapped gift to worship on Dec. 4.
Our outreach is done through local organizations such as: Aid For Friends, Second Time Around Parents, Silver Springs School, Lutheran Settlement House, The Migrant Ministry, and Chester Eastside Ministry. These organizations provide support to many throughout the year. But they need our help to do it.
Please help share our bounty with neighbors in need during the upcoming holiday season. Look for more information in the weekly Reformation Lite in the weeks ahead.
