Once again, the Outreach Commission is gathering Christmas gifts for the children at Epiphany Church, our mission in Marina. Last year they served 130 children and their families during Yuletide, and again this year there is great need for help.
Fr. Jon at Epiphany suggests that warm clothing (jackets, heavy sweatshirts, etc.), art supplies, books, and toys for children ages infant to twelve years are appropriate. Please leave the gifts unwrapped. If you don’t have the time or inclination to shop, gift cards (not to exceed $25), cash, or checks are also most welcome. When giving cash or check, please write “Christmas gifts” on the envelope or memo line. During the week, all items and checks should be brought to the church office. Gifts may be placed in the green and red boxes during Sunday services and checks/cash may be placed in the offering plate in a designated envelope or with a memo.
Fr. Jon and his staff will use these contributions to buy more gifts which will all be distributed on Christmas Eve. In the past, All Saints’ parishioners have been very generous, and we hope that many of you will participate again. All donations should be at the church by noon on Tuesday, December 17.
Thank you from the Outreach Commission, and we wish you all a wonderful and blessed Christmas. Questions: Judy Kirk (620-0820) or other Outreach member.
